San Juan de la Rambla - 24.12.2013 - Local media report today that Tomás Mesa was detained on the busy Tres de Mayo boulevard on Saturday night after causing an accident in which three people were injured. The mayor was breathalysed at the scene and was allegedly found to be well over the legal limit for alcohol. Mesa, who is a member of the Popular Party (PP), was in the headlines a few months ago when he was accused by opponents of tuning up for council meetings in an "unfit state", which he attributed to the "effects of tablets he was taking". News of his arrest has led to calls for his party to sack him as mayor and kick him out immediately. Ironically, before becoming mayor he was a member of the local police force in San Juan.
