Zbigniew R. (full name withheld under Polish privacy laws) was detained on Sunday night while entering the A2 motorway at Nowy Tomysl, western Poland.

Police had been tipped off by a member of the public that a driver had been seen firing indiscriminate shots into the air.

After the arrest, a section of the road was closed off so that police offers could search for the incriminating cartridges. The gun, for which the suspect had a permit, has been confiscated.

Zbigniew R. served as deputy minister of the interior in 2007 as a member of the Law and Justice party.

He is currently sobering up in police custody. (nh)
