A French lawyer who stalled his car in the middle of the road at Port Hercules while over the drink-drive limit has been fined €800 by Monaco’s criminal court. The thirty-two-year-old jurist had faced a penalty of between €1,000 and €1,500.

The incident took place on May 3, at about 1 am, not far from police headquarters, as the lawyer was driving towards Nice after a night out in Monaco. Although the lawyer managed to restart his vehicle, the police quickly arrived on the scene to breath-test him having observed the driver’s erratic conduct on CCTV.
