A 43-year-old businessman was arrested Thursday for trying to bribe a police officer when he was stopped for drunk driving.

Kwan Yang Lee was stopped at 9.45pm along the Queens Road in Namotomoto during the ongoing Operation Blitz in the Western Division and tried to bribe his way out by offering the police officer $30.

He was later charged with one count of drunk and drive and one count of bribery.

He has been bailed to appear Nadi Magistrates court at a later date.

Police spokesperson Ana Naisoro has reiterated to members of the public that such behavior will not be tolerated.

“The operation is being conducted with the aim of keeping our roads safe from those who are intent on going against road laws and regulations and anyone thinking of trying to beat the system must think twice,” Naisoro said.

She further said officers will not compromise the safety of others and will not entertain illegal acts as the safety of all road users is paramount and anyone found trying to go against the system will face the consequences of the law.
