Contradictory reports

As per reports, a police official of the Kukatpally Traffic Police in Hyderabad said that Prince Cecil was ‘caught’ driving drunk in the wee hours of Sunday in Bachupally. The actor allegedly was returning from a bash when the police stopped him at a checkpoint at 1.30 am, reports stated. On conducting the drunk driving test with a breathalyzer, reportedly 42 BAC (Blood Alcohol Content) was found. Since the amount was above the permissible levels, the police registered a case against him under Section 185 of the Indian Penal Code, the officer said. The cop also said that he was produced before a court in Kukatpally on Tuesday and even given counselling. The official said that he was allowed to go, because it was his ‘first offence’ and also since the alcohol content was ‘not too high’. Pictures of the actor making his way out of the court had also surfaced then. 

As the police officer’s statement and reports about the drunk driving case made headlines, Prince Cecil was asked about it for a reaction by a media publication.  The Tollywood actor, however, denied the allegations completely. As per reports, he claimed that he was present at a court along with his mother to attend a property dispute. He even said anyone was free to confirm it since it was in the records.
