PETALING JAYA: A 33-year-old man was arrested for driving while under the influence of alcohol.

Petaling Jaya OCPD Nik Ezanee Mohd Faisal said the suspect was driving haphazardly when approaching a roadblock on the Sprint Highway at about 9.15pm on Wednesday (April 8).

"However, no one was hurt during the incident.

"We managed to detain the suspect," he said when contacted.

A breathalyser test revealed that the suspect's blood alcohol level was over the permitted level, he added.

"We are investigating under Section 45A(1) of Road Transport Act 1987, as well as Section 279 of the Penal Code for reckless driving," ACP Nik Ezanee said.
