The officer was arrested at the Malolo Transmitter Road for drunk driving, refusing to cooperate with law enforcers and will be appearing before the Magistrates court in Nadi today.

Meanwhile, a home belonging to a 69-year-old in Sawara settlement in Ra was completely destroyed in a fire on Tuesday.
