With the oddest law, and the initmidation from the cops, the foreigner emptied his liquor by the roadside. He then went to a beverage outlet, bought a bill and showed it to police, after which he went to his residence. These incidents were captured on video by passersby, which went viral on social media. Also, after emptying the bottle, Stephen did not throw away the plastic bottle.
