Police release DUI suspect over diplomatic immunity

"When officers pulled him over, the report said Saynez-Ruiz-Duran told police he'd had a few vodkas at a Buckhead club. The report said Saynez-Ruiz-Duran's blood alcohol level was 0.126 and that he urinated in his pants during the stop.

When officers went to arrest the 39-year-old, they learned he was a vice consular at the Mexican Consulate General's Atlanta office. The report said a call to the State Department confirmed his status and that he had partial immunity, and couldn't be arrested.

"He was released with citations for DUI and super speeder," Holland told Petchenik."
