A woman was booked for alleged drunken driving with a video of her friend picking up a quarrel with police over their action going viral.
Both women were allegedly found in an inebirated state.
Police said the woman, travelling in the rear seat of a car driven by her friend, stepped out when the vehicle was stopped at around 1 AM during a special drive against drunken driving.
She started arguing with them over a breathalyser test being conducted on her friend and also chased away a camera man of a local TV channel.
