Polish MP denies drunk driving

A POLISH lawmaker who failed a drunk-driving test said he had eaten too many apples, the Website of daily newspaper Gazeta Wyborcza said yesterday.

Asked why a traffic police check on Sunday showed he had 0.7 units of alcohol in his blood, Marek Latas denied drinking alcohol that day.

"I am diabetic, I ate a few apples before driving," said Latas, a member of parliament for the conservative opposition Law and Justice Party. "I have been involved in no accident, I underwent a routine roadside check. I was confident there was no chance I had alcohol in my blood."

The prosecutor's office is investigating his case, the Website said. In Poland, the legal limit for alcohol when driving is 0.2 units. Fermented apple juice can be used to make cider, an alcoholic drink.
