Police Insp.-Gen. Yochanan Danino ordered an
investigation on Monday into claims that a senior officer refused an alcohol
breath test at a police checkpoint in Jerusalem in recent
According to the claims, published by Ynet, police volunteers at
the Moriah police sub district in Jerusalem asked the-then sub district head,
Doron Yadid, to undergo a routine alcohol test after he arrived in civilian
clothing at a police checkpoint in Talpiot.
The volunteers did not
recognize Yadid and stopped his car for an alcohol test. The report claimed
Yadid reacted with outrage to the request and refused to take it. Police have
denied the claims, the report said.
Yadid has since been promoted to the
rank of Lt.-Cmdr, and assigned to head a police training division.
