Croat policeman's carnival disaster

Croatian Times

A drunk cop who ploughed into a pedestrian while on his way home from a party has been arrested.

The off-duty officer was returning from a street carnival in Viskovo when he hit the woman in his Opel.

She was taken to hospital in Rijeka with serious though not life-threatening injuries, tabloid 24 Sata reports.

The policeman was found to have 2.15 per mille alcohol in his blood.

    So, it will be interesting to see if the full force of the law applies in this case. I trust he has been suspended from duty.
