Well-oiled driver faces jail

A DRIVER who allegedly tried to run a Guardia Civil officer over and fled, and who was later found to be five times over the limit for alcohol, is to face a jail sentence for his escapades.

Officers reported that the driver, who they spotted swerving on the A-350 near Huercal-Overa on August 7, put his foot down and tried to flatten one of them when ordered to halt.

He then hightailed it towards the town, leading to a high speed chase during which he crossed onto the other side of the busy road several times, forcing oncoming vehicles to brake sharply in order to avoid crashing.

The Public Prosecutor has requested a five year jail sentence for the man, who it accuses of one crime against road safety and another of attempting to cause intentional injury.
