Cop pays price, sort of, for drunken car crash

Police said one of their own was driving drunk in Phnom Penh’s Tuol Kork district on Wednesday night when he crashed into a rubbish bin and broke his leg.

The 30-year-old officer was coming home from a party with his friends, where he drank a lot of beer, according to police. He lost control on the road and crashed.

Wanting nothing to do with this particular mess, the cleaner took the bin away before police arrived and sent the officer to the hospital. There was no mention of him being sent to court. DEUM AMPIL
