Sobering up in Mels SG aborted
Drunk woman runs away from police station – in the car
A 43-year-old Spaniard drove off the parking lot of the Mels SG police station drunk on Saturday morning. She spent the night at the police base because she didn’t want to leave a man’s apartment.
The woman’s breath alcohol measurement showed a value of over 0.7 mg/l. (archive image)
At 5:30 a.m., the police were summoned to an apartment in Sarganserland, the cantonal police in St. Gallen said. Apparently, the Spaniard had been visiting the tenant of the apartment for several days, but then refused to leave.
As the police continue to write, the woman “in the presence of several police patrols” was finally ready to leave the apartment. Since she was obviously drunk, she and her car were taken to the Mels police station. There she was offered to sober up in the heat.
Shortly after 9:00 a.m., police officers working at the base were able to observe how the woman got into her car and drove off. She was stopped shortly thereafter. A breath alcohol measurement carried out on her showed a value of over 0.7 mg/l. The driver’s license for Switzerland was taken away from the woman who lives in Spain.
