A Fiji police officer who was arrested on Wednesday after he was caught driving and under the influence of alcohol has been charged.

Police spokeswoman Ana Naisoro said the officer has been charged with four counts of dangerous driving, and a count each of disobedience of lawful order, failing to undergo breath test, driving motor vehicle with expired drivers licence and contravening condition of 3rd party policy.

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.

The estimated cost of damage is $8000 and the cause of fire is yet to be determined.

The 25m x 6m corrugated iron and timber home was vacant at the time of the fire and is not insured.
