He shoulda stayed home

He's lucky to have gotten:

a.) Just 3 months in jail; and

b.) Just losing his job.

Picture is NOT of the incident.

Traffic officer jailed for drunk driving -

A traffic officer in East China's Wenzhou city has received three months in jail for drunk driving, the Xinhua news agency reported, making him the first traffic officer to receive a sentence for driving whilst drunk since new laws were passed by the National People's Congress in China.

Hu Jilin, the deputy head of the expressway traffic police department in East China's Wenzhou city, was charged with dangerous driving and jailed for three months and fined 3,000 yuan by the city's Lucheng Court on June 21, 2011.

Hu drove a yellow Ford car while drunk and collided with the back of a cab, which was stopped at an intersection, on June 11, 2011.

After the accident, Hu's blood alcohol level was tested and proved to be 127 milligrams per one hundred milliliters.

Hu was immediately taken into custody by the police and has since been dismissed from his post.
