Illegal resident picked up for drunk driving

Paphos police say that a 38-year-old Georgian national was arrested for drunk driving and illegal residency at 18:30 on Saturday.

The car driven by the 38-year-old was stopped during a routine alcohol check on Saturday afternoon and a subsequent Alco-test showed a blood-alcohol level of 58mg, nearly three times the legal limit.

Subsequent investigations showed that the suspect had entered the Republic as a registered visitor from March 18-25, 2017 and had remained on the island illegally ever since.

The 38-year-old was arrested and detained pending further investigations.
