Kollywood actor Jai Sampath, also known as Jai, was arrested for allegedly driving a car under the influence of alcohol and hitting a divider in Adyar early on Thursday. Later, Jai was released on bail.
According to a report in The Hindu, Jai partied with playback singer Premji Amaren and few other actors at a hotel in Nungambakkam. The incident happened when he was on his way to his Indira Nagar residence. Jai lost control of his car, thereby colliding into a divider near Adyar.
The report further states that the actor was booked under Sections 185 (driving by a drunken person or by a person under the influence of drugs) and 279 (rash driving or riding on a public way) of the Motor Vehicles Act.
Sources said Jai was booked in 2014 after his vehicle rammed a median near Kasi Theatre. Therefore, the police have recommended the cancellation of his licence.
