The captain of the dry cargo ship BBC Lagos, while in a state of intoxication, landed the ship stranded off the coast of Sweden.

As the press secretary of the Southern region of the police, Fredrik Bratt, told TASS, when detaining a sailor, a Russian passport was found.

“The content of alcohol in the captain’s blood is 2.5 ppm.┬áThis is a very large indicator, which means that the offender may face punishment in the form of imprisonment, “he added.┬áThe court hearing on this case will take place no later than August 7.

It is specified that the cargo vessel BBC Lagos, registered in the Caribbean islands, transported 5 thousand tons of wheat from Lithuania to Spain.
