Get caught Drink Driving and have your car smashed up.

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Police in Greater Manchester are taking drink driving serious now.
    Ooops!
     
  2. Stupid fuckers.
    Hopefully they will be queing at the dole office after that
     
  3. Well as he wasn't yet convicted of D&D, just suspected and it was 'against force policy' for them to drive it, where do they stand on insurance? Not the vehicle owners problem and the force could say they weren't covered by theirs as it was as stated 'against force policy' to drive it away.

    They seem to be bang to rights off playing in someone else's 'tasty' car on the force's time. Mind you, if the owner was eventually charged with D&D, throw the book at him as well.
     
  4. It's OK - apparently no sheds were harmed when the OB drove through the two (TWO?) gardens.
     
  5. Thank god, I was concerned for the sheds then, though strangely not for our intrepid boys in blue!
     
  6. He will still get banned for DD. Provided the car was in a fit condition to drive, i.e. brakes etc all working properly, He will also make a claim for his motor and get some money for it but he won't get much sympathy from anybody.
     
  7. Only if the confirmatory test at the station confirms what he was suspected of at the roadside. It is of course possible that the hash up with his car and the injury of one of the officers delayed that test long enough to make a difference.

    It's not just him going to be making a claim. He's had what sounds like an expensive car trashed and two householders have had their gardens trashed.

    Sounds like as good a case of TWOC as any Ive come across. They will get what they deserve stupid fickers. No wonder nobody trusts us anymore.
