The police wanted to stop a van on February 23, 2023, at around 12:00 in Debrecen, on Sámsoni út. At the signal of the uniformed officers, instead of braking, the driver stepped on the gas and tried to cross the surrounding streets.
The driver stopped in Zrínyi Street, jumped out of the car, and then pretended that he was busy there, without even having time to stop the engine. During his verification, it was revealed that he was driving under a ban, and the breathalyzer used against him also showed a positive value.
After questioning him as a suspect, the police took him into custody and made a referral for his arrest, which the District Court of Debrecen ordered. Driving under the ban is a felony and driving while intoxicated is a crime on the basis of a well-founded suspicion of committing a misdemeanor.
