Motorist complains to police, then gets himself arrested

Date Posted: 2007-11-15

An angry motorist got far more than he bargained for after complaining to cops about someone’s car being on his parking spot.

Okinawa City Police responded to the call, listening to the man describe a car parked in his space. The irate complainant took police in his own car to the spot where the illegally parked car was, and demanded action. Police took the information on the car, then realized they had a bigger problem on their hands.

The agitated motorist was more than irritated. He’d been drinking, and police detected the odor as they sat in his car. A breathalyzer test was administered, and the man had a 0.47 reading. They arrested him on the spot for driving while intoxicated, advising the man the 100 meters distance driven had no bearing on the law.

The man, an Okinawa City employee in the civil engineering section, now faces the driving under influence charges.
