The Policía Local in Rincón de la Victoria arrested a Frenchman for traffic offences in the early hours of one morning last week.
The police stopped the vehicle on the Avenida del Mediterráneo at 03.55h, which had been speeding whilst swerving erratically, sometimes into the oncoming lane.
They identified the driver, 52-year-old J.A.R. from France, who was showing signs of being under the influence of alcohol. He was breathalysed and gave a reading of 0.56mg/l of air.
Upon inspecting the vehicle they found hashish and marihuana. They also ran an identity check on the driver and found that he had an arrest warrant out on him for not having appeared at Malaga Provincial Law Court.
The Policía Local took him in to book him before handing him over to the Guardia Civil so that he could be brought before the said law court.
