Seven in court on DUIs

Sev­en peo­ple, in­clud­ing an en­vi­ron­men­tal con­sul­tant and an en­gi­neer, are expected to appear before a Port of Spain Magistrate on Monday on allegations of driving under the influence.

The seven, who are between the ages of 27 and 56, include an environmental consultant and an engineer.

They were arrested early Saturday morning during a road block exercise in St Clair.

The exercise was co­or­di­nat­ed by Snr Supt Pragg, Supt Ablack, In­sp De­onar­ine, Insp Commissiong, Sgt Bharath and Cpl Arthur.

The seven were stopped by the officers, tested, and all gave a reading over the legal limit.

The legal limit in this country is 35 microgrammes of alcohol per 100 milligrammes of breath or 80 milligrammes of alcohol per 100 milligrammes of blood.

As a result, they are all expected to appear in court on Monday morning.
