Dubai // A drunk student damaged the door of a police car when he resisted arrest, a court heard.
Police responded to reports of a drunk man causing problems in the Umm Suqaim area at about 2am on July 26.
When they arrived, officers saw B R, 27, causing a scene and arrested him. He started kicking the window and the back door, the court heard.
The British national said that he was at a birthday party at a friend’s house where he drank alcohol.
He then went to a nightclub in Jebel Ali where he continued drinking. The man said he hailed a taxi and argued with the driver.
“Police came and took me to the station, I kicked the patrol car’s door once,” B R said.
The man was charged with consuming alcohol without a licence and damaging the door of a police car at Dubai Misdemeanours Court.
A verdict is expected soon.
