Without suspicious behavior, the police would likely have been content with routine checks. But in the car stopped near Agen, two men were present, one of them very agitated. After the start of the check, the latter verbally attacked the sworn officers and even jostled them, before being arrested. His behavior was explained by excessive alcohol consumption which led to his being placed in police custody before a hearing to justify his actions. His friend in the car had not been drinking: he was not worried. History does not say whether the two men had the certificate of derogatory displacement necessary for any exit.
Reminder of the law
The story of this alcoholic man is not an isolated affair, unfortunately, some drink alcohol more than reason and go out despite the rules of containment. This is what police and gendarmes in Lot-et-Garonne report, who had to do more than once in the past weekend to alcoholic individuals who stood out and left their homes without a certificate of derogatory travel . They recall that the penalty is still 135 euros fine while a new form has been available online since yesterday.
