Drunk Driver Lands in Jail

FUJAIRAH — Upholding the lower court’s verdict, the Fujairah Court of Appeal on Wednesday sentenced a man to two months in prison for driving under the influence of alcohol.

According to court records, the man, an Indian was seen by a police patrol driving in the wrong direction on a road. He was asked to stop, and it appeared that he was not in a normal state. A test for alcohol showed that he was drunk.

He was referred to the public prosecution, which sent him to the Court of First Instance in Fujairah. He was found guilty and ordered to stay behind bars for two months for driving while he was drunk. The accused appealed the verdict but it was upheld by the higher court. — salah@khaleejtimes.com
