"Will the motorist be fined? If so, on what ground and how much will he have to pay? If his car is impounded, will it remain in the police garage for two months? Is there a possibility to reach a reconciliation deal?" the source asked.
According to the policeman's citation, the driver admitted that he had a bad mouth smell.
