THE former mayor of Velez-Malaga has been charged with a double offense: running into a Guardia Civil officer and failing a breathalyzer test.
At about 1 pm on Friday afternoon, Antonio Souviron drove his car into a police officer on a motorcycle, who had attempted to stop him for a driving infraction.
In a breathalyzer test, his blood alcohol level was .29.
The legal limit in Spain is .05.
The officer, who was stopped at the time of the collision, only suffered ‘a few bruises,’ according to sources at Guardia Civil.
Souviron was arrested at the time of the incident and since has been released.
Antonio Souviron was mayor of Velez-Malaga between 1996 and 2007.
He served as provincial delegate for the Tourism Ministry for the Junta de Andalucia from July 2008 to 2012.
