This incident occurred on May 27, around 1:40 am when Lim was driving along an East Coast Parkway slip road into Fort Road.

He allegedly had at least 49 micrograms of alcohol in 100 millilitres of breath at the time of his arrest, surpassing the prescribed limit of 35 micrograms.

The police wasted no time in responding to this incident. Swiftly, they initiated investigations against Lim and took immediate action by transferring him to a non-front-line post within the PCG.

A police spokesperson has commented on this issue, stating, “Officers of the Singapore Police Force are expected to uphold the law and maintain the highest standards of conduct and integrity. We deal accordingly with officers who break the law, including charging them in court. We are unable to comment further, as the court case is ongoing.”
