A Local Police officer was injured last Friday in the Trapiche Norte area after trying to stop a driver going the wrong way down a one-way road.

The driver, who subsequently was breathalysed and tested positive, appeared to slow down but then sped up and carried the officer along for at least 100 metres on his bonnet.

The man and passenger fled but were tracked down.

The driver was arrested and had since been released on bail after paying 15,000 euros.
