The Mexican Embassy in the United States informed that Ricardo Cámara, Atlanta's Mexican consul general, was stopped while driving erratically along Holcomb Bridge Road last week.

Because of his diplomatic immunity, police did not arrest Cámara and only cited him for drunken driving and sent him home in a taxi.

“We trust that the investigation will be carried out in strict accordance with the applicable local and international guidelines. We remain attentive to the development and results of said investigation," the embassy said.

In April 2012, vice-consul Mariano Saynez Ruiz Durán was arrested in the same city for the same reason.
