A man has been sentenced to 22 days in prison and  fined  107,000 kroner after driving under the influence on Harøy in Sandøy municipality in Møre og Romsdal.

The drive in March ended with the car  off the road, hitting a tree stump and finally being overturned, according to Romsdals Budstikke.
The man pleaded guilty to everything he was convicted of. This earned him 22 days in jail instead of 30. The fine in such cases is one and a half gross monthly salary, and this means the man has to pay 107,000 kroner.
The man also had his driving license taken away for two years and three months, and he needs to take a new driving test before he is allowed to get behind the wheel again.
