“Wise not to drink on the job in her beauty parlour, wise not to drive under the influence on the roads in Monaco.” – reports HelloMonaco.com
Twenty nine years old, and with a responsible job as manager of a beauty parlour in Estonia, a young lady went off the rails on a drinking spree in Monaco with her girlfriend.
Cocktails at the bar set the mood followed by more cocktails at another one. Then the alcohol started to take its toll on her friend who felt queasy.
The tearful twenty nine year old defendant, now facing the court, described how she escorted her friend to her own mother’s car. Without pausing to think straight, she foolishly then drove away, under the influence through Monaco.
Manoeuvring drunk at about 4am she hit a parked car whose owner, noticing the dents, immediately alerted the police. Breathalyzed and detained – with sufficient alcohol registered equivalent to a bottle of spirits or two bottles of wine. Having put everyone in danger by driving in an alcoholic state she narrowly escaped immediate incarceration.
The court was lenient and took into consideration that she had a clean record, had already spent a night in detention and had pressing management duties awaiting back in Estonia. A suspended prison sentence was deemed more appropriate.
Wise not to drink on the job in her beauty parlour, wise not to drive under the influence on the roads in Monaco.
