Drunk driver with five passengers arrested

Arrest made in Kingscourt over weekend

Gardaí have arrested a man on suspected drink driving who had five other passengers in the car.

The arrest occurred on Saturday night last, October 2, when Gardaí in Bailieborough were patrolling in Kingscourt and encountered a car being driven erratically.

“Initially this car failed to stop and continued driving dangerously until it eventually came to a halt,” gardaí reported on social media. There were a total of six occupants in the car.”

The driver was subsequently arrested and later charged with drunk driving.

He will be appearing in court at a later date.

The spokesperson adds: “The car was also detained as the driver was a learner permit holder and was driving without being accompanied by a full licence holder.”
