By order of the Ministerio Público de Pococí, Agüero was taken to the Guapiles hospital for  a blood test and then set free by the prosecutor, with an appeareance date of September 2.

Agüero’s lawyer called the police action “political persecution”.

In 2008, Agüero was arrested for the death of a cyclist he ran over. On that occasion he was allged to be driving under the influence. However, last January Agüero was acquitted because it was proven that the accident was caused by the cyclist.

The deputy district attonery in Pococí,  Erna González Zamora, said, “Agüero was detained because he showed all the signs of a person driving under the influence of alcohol, but he would not submit to a breathalyzer. Thus we asked for a blood sample”.

Agüero’s lawyer had a different version. According to the lawyer, his client after lunch left his home for Cariari on business and the back to Guapiles, where we was detained at the checkpoint.

“They told him he had booze on his breath, he was asked to blow, he did two times and resulted negative…”. Picado assures that the blood test will also be negative and his client will then have to aqcuitted.
