DRINK-DRIVER IS NICKED AT POLICE JOB INTERVIEW
A JOB candidate attended an interview with police and was arrested for being over the legal drink-drive limit.
The man, in his 50s, was hoping to secure an IT support role at Greater Manchester Police last month when his interviewer noticed an “overpowering” smell of alcohol as the candidate stepped into an office at the force’s training centre at Sedgley Park, North Manchester.
A traffic officer was called and the interviewee admitted he’d shared a bottle of wine with his wife the previous night.
The unnamed man was escorted out of the building and breathalysed, which showed he was over the drink-drive limit.
He was then taken to a nearby police station where he gave another positive reading and was subsequently charged with drink-driving.
Last week the man appeared before Bury magistrates and was banned from driving for a year.
