BENGALURU: A 25-year-old woman who had abused a traffic police inspector who was checking for drunken driving was released on bail on Monday.
Dimple, a resident of Koramangala who works at a ladies’ bar, was arrested by Wilson Garden police after she abused a traffic police inspector who attempted to make her take the Breathalyzer test on Saturday night. Dimple saw the check-post from a distance while driving on Double Road, near Lalbagh, and took a turn and tried to hightail it. But in her hurry, she fell and was caught by the police.
When they asked her to take the Breathalyzer test, she refused and verbally abused police inspector Meenakshi. The officer grabbed Dimple’s scooter keys to prevent her from leaving. Dimple got angrier and continued to hurl abuses at the inspector, threatening her of ‘dire consequences’ if she was not allowed to leave. Meanwhile, a constable was recording the incident and Dimple started to attack him as well.
Eventually, she agreed to undergo the test, but the reading showed she was clearly driving under influence. Constable Puttaraju filed a complaint against Dimple with the Wilson Garden police.
She has been booked for drunken driving, riding without licence, reckless driving and not carrying vehicle documents.
