An Apple Daily report from May 8th, reveals that on the afternoon of the first of the month, a traffic police officer based at Kaohsiung’s XinXing Station hit a motorcycle rider in the FongShan District.
The officer, surnamed Xu, was found to be drunk … very drunk — to the tune of 0.74 mg/l.
Xu will be facing all kinds of charges and demerits … the 49-year-old’s career as a police officer is now also in serious jeopardy.
The woman he hit was from reports, sitting on a motorcycle waiting for a light to change. The Vietnamese national, aged 33, was injured, but apparently not severely.
This is just the latest case in south Taiwan of a cop getting caught boozing and driving.
In March 2017, a GuShan officer was nabbed for DUI and in December of 2016, several officers from north Kaohsiung and Tainan allegedly were involved in drinking and driving incidents.
