Expat arrested for drunk driving, hurting two policemen

Two police officers were injured by a middle-aged expatriate who they saw driving unsteadily in Sai Kung, Sing Tao Daily reported Monday.

At 9 p.m. on Saturday night, a police patrol car spotted the drunk driver was driving a seven-seater vehicle unsteadily along Sai Kung’s Tai Mong Tsai Road toward Pak Tam Chung.

They stopped the driver.

The 45-year-old man, named Barry, opened his car door suddenly, knocking the police officer standing by the door to the ground. The glass window was smashed.

Seeing the driver was trying to flee, another police officer tried to stop him but was cut by fragments of broken glass.

The driver drove 30 meters away and stopped at a bus stop.

Other police officers arrested him after he exceeded the legal limit of 22 milligrams of alcohol per liter in a breath test.

The injured officers received medical treatment at Tseung Kwan O Hospital.

The driver’s car was taken to the police vehicle pound at Kowloon Bay for inspection.

He was granted bail and must report to a police station early next month.
