New Delhi, Aug 23 (ANI): A drink driving inspector in China was caught driving drunk himself.
Liang Huiming, secretary of the Party disciplinary inspection commission in Lanhe township, under Guangzhou's Panyu district, Guangdong province has now been detained for 15 days.
According to the local police, he was detained as part of a nationwide campaign against drunken driving, reports the China Daily.
When he was stopped at night for alcohol testing, on his way home, after drinking, he tried calling friends and colleagues for help and also tried to escape by showing his work certificate.
Liang said: "I thought police would let me free after I showed my work certificate. But now I know I really did wrong. It is a tough lesson for me".
A traffic police officer on condition of anonymity said: "He confessed to drunk driving, but he appeared to try to use his power to avoid the testing.
"He repeatedly pleaded for a lenient punishment. But we will not allow any government official involved in drunk driving to be free (of alcohol testing and punishment)."
He was sent to the local detention house the next day. (ANI)
