Actor Jai's Driving License Suspended For Drunken Driving Case

Actor Jai Sampath of Chennai 28 fame, who is better known as Jai, was on Saturday slapped with a fine of Rs 5,200 and had his licence suspended for six months by a court on charges of drunken driving.

According to media reports, the actor who had appeared at the Saidapet Magistrate Court on Saturday admitted to have been drunk when he was driving his car on September 21. The actor had rammed his Audi car onto a divider on the Adayar flyover in Chennai, allegedly driving after a party with friends. His actor friend Premgi Amaren was also with him in the car. A report in The Hindu also said that a warrant was issued against him as Jai failed to appear in front of the court for the second day.

Jai Sampath was arrested last month after he drove under the influence of alcohol and crashed his Audi into a divider in Adyar. He later obtained bail. The actor of 'Goa' fame was reportedly at the wheel of his Audi when the car rammed the sidewalk of the flyover on LB road in Adyar. According to reports, he was also not carrying his driving license, vehicle insurance or RC book.

Since the actor had a similar case registered against him earlier, Chennai traffic police had suggested cancelling his driver license. In 2014, Jai had rammed into the divider on the flyover near Kasi theatre.

On the work front, Jai’s Balloon is set for release on September 27. The film also features Anjali and Janani Iyer and has music scored by Yuvan Shankar Raja. The film made headlines recently for having a tribute song to Bigg Boss fame Oviya titled Neenga shut up pannunga after her famous punchline on the show.
