Drunk and without insurance, he invents that he was not driving

Sentenced to a license suspension and a fine, he tried to lie in court, explaining that he was not driving his car at the time.

The scene took place in the court of Vannes. As unbelievable as it may seem, a drunk and uninsured controlled individual told the judges that he was not driving his car.

The judges don’t believe him

Obviously, the judges did not believe the lies of the culprit. They told him: “Aren’t you talking nonsense to us? Because it’s hard to believe that you weren’t driving when you read the police report, which indicates that the driver got out of his car on his own and alone to head towards them. »

According to this 43-year-old Vannetais, unknown to justice, everything would be a pure invention of the police.

The facts took place on November 27, 2022, shortly before 3 a.m. As the police spot a car driving slowly and zigzagging, they decide to stop it.

When they stop the vehicle, the driver declares that it was an Ivorian friend who was driving and who fled at the last moment. The police then find that the individual does not have insurance and attempt to measure his blood alcohol level. The man refuses the test and it is a doctor who notes his state of intoxication at the police station. Indeed, he had glassy eyes, he staggered and his breath smelled full of alcohol. In the early morning, he agrees to perform the test and it displays 0.86 g/l.

Without a lawyer during the trial, he asserts: “With friends, we had been drinking when one offered to drive me home. So I was not driving but front passenger. I was sleeping when he suddenly stopped to get out of the car, leaving the keys on the seat. I couldn’t get out of the passenger side because the car was badly parked. Admittedly, I had been drinking but I was not driving, which is why I refused this control. I never saw this friend again, whose identity I don’t know and who I was told had left the region. »

The prosecutor’s reward leaves no room for doubt: “He invented a story sewn with white thread. The police saw that there was only one person on board before parking and they did not see anyone else get out. Because he was afraid of losing his license and had no insurance, the defendant, in a state of obvious intoxication, refused to submit to the alcohol test. But he was willing to do it for drug testing because he knew he hadn’t used drugs. »

The culprit was sentenced to an eight-month license suspension for driving while intoxicated, and was also fined €500 for driving without insurance.
