Daily Echo: Ship's captain in court after allegedly failing breath test Ship's captain in court after allegedly failing breath test

THE captain of a cargo ship berthed at Southampton Docks has appeared in court after allegedly failing to provide a breath test.

Han Gi Cheong, 60, from Korea, was arrested after officers boarded a vessel berthed at Southampton Docks.

Mr Cheong was the captain of a 68,000 tonnes 232 metres long cargo vessel which had berthed at the docks on December 27 on arrival from Antwerp.

He was charged with failing to provide a preliminary breath test when required to do so.

He appeared before magistrates on December 28 and was remanded in custody to appear before Southampton Crown Court on January 29.

He was one of more than 200 people who were arrested as part of Hampshire police's annual Christmas drink and drug impaired driving campaign.

Well I've read it again and it doesn't say if he was arrested for driving the ship or a car (and then going back on board). One of the problems of using an agency report without checking it (same on BBC News).

Numbnuts x 2.

I agree it's totally ambiguous but

Han Gi Cheong, 60, from Korea, was arrested after officers boarded a vessel berthed at Southampton Docks.

if he was arrested for failing to provide a sample at the roadside he probably wouldn't have been able to go back to his ship ..... so therefore it seems pretty likely that this was a random breath test in the docks or he was reported as being drunk and police were called? can someone clarify this?
