Drunk PSP officer has motorbike accident

A senior police officer of the Public Security Police Force (PSP) had an accident while driving his motorbike under the influence of alcohol.
The accident took place at midnight on January 5 at Avenida do Comendador Ho Yin. The PSP officer involved is male, surnamed Chow, in his 40s. When the PSP officers arrived at the scene, alcohol testing could not be conducted because Chow was injured and was already in an ambulance.
At the Conde S. Januário Hospital, Chow finally underwent blood alcohol testing, which indicated he had a blood alcohol concentration of 2.4 milligrams per liter.
Chow admitted that he had been drinking wine earlier in a restaurant in Fai Chi Kei.
Chow began serving in the PSP in 1999. The security authority has already initiated a disciplinary investigation against him and will pursue legal action.
Yesterday, the PSP reaffirmed that the bureau attaches importance to the ethical conduct of police officers, and requires police officers abide by the law and have a high level of awareness in their daily lives. The PSP said it would not tolerate any violations. JZ
