Councillor gets 4 months for police incident

Councillor Carlos Bezares
SAN ROQUE (Agencies) Councillor for Tourism Carlos Bezares (PSOE) was sentenced on Monday to 4 months in prison and 16 without driving licence, after a court, in 'speed trial' (juicio rápido), confirmed that he disobeyed police instructions last Friday when he was asked to take a breathalyser test, as well as 'committing an offence against road safety', according to sources. These also say that he showed  'all the symptoms of drunk driving.' The incident occurred in Pueblo Nuevo de Guadiaro, when the councillor saw a police control and made a manoeuvre to evade it. The police stopped him not knowing who it was. He was asked for his documentation and to take a breathalyser test, which he refused. He was reported to his superiors as well as to the court, since 'disobedience is an offence', as the police report.
