Ex-Joo Chiat MP Chan Soo Sen convicted of drink driving
Former Member of Parliament for Joo Chiat Chan Soo Sen was on Thursday disqualified from driving for a year and fined $2,000 for drink driving.
He was caught by mobile police after attending a charity event at 11.55pm on July 13. A breathalyser test revealed he had 50mg of alcohol per 100ml, over the legal limit of 35mg.
Mr Chan said he had "a moment of carelessness".
He could not get a taxi to the event, so he decided to drive. After the event, he also did not ask a car jockey to drive him home. He said organisers of the charity event had toasted him.
