STOCKHOLM, Sept. 6 (Xinhua) -- A former Swedish government minister has been ordered to pay 40,000 SEK (4,600 U.S. dollars) in fines after she was caught drunk driving.
Aida Hadzialic, 29, resigned as minister for upper secondary school, adult education and training last month after police stopped her car in a random check.
She had a blood-alcohol level of 0.2 grams per liter, which is just above the legal limit in Sweden.
Hadzialic said she had drunk two glasses of wine at a concert in Copenhagen four hours before being stopped. The police control took place after she had crossed the Oresund bridge over to Sweden.
Hadzialic announced her resignation at a press conference the following day and said the incident was her "life's biggest mistake". Enditem
