An Irishman who was accused of trying to run over two traffic officers in Andorra has been expelled from the country for seven years and ordered to pay a 2,700 euro fine.

He was sentenced after a court found him guilty of four offenses: damages, “refusal to control alcohol”, reckless driving and “serious disobedience to authority”.

The 36-year-old driver was stopped by police hours after the incident involving a “high-end” BMW in La Massana.

Police said they were taking action against the driver only, and not a family member who was a passenger in the British-registered car that accelerated and “tried to run over the agents”.

It has been reported that the accused man alleged that he had mental health issues that led to his behaviour.
