The 22-year-old son of Finance Minister Avraham Hirchson, Barak, was caught driving under the influence of alcohol on the way to his north Tel Aviv home early Friday morning. Police had set up a road block on Tel Aviv's Namir Way and noticed a driver starting to accelerate on a red light at a junction. Before Hirchson crossed the junction police signaled to him to stop his vehicle and he abided by their request. The police officers suspected that Hirchson was driving under the influence of alcohol after they smelled a strong whiff of alcohol coming from the car. The officers asked the finance minister's son to take a drunkenness test and Hirchson was found to be three times over the legal limit. Police will decide on Sunday whether to confiscate Hirchson's license.
