Journey, Raja Rani and Ballon actor Jai was arrested on Thursday by Chennai police for driving under the influence of alcohol. According to report, Jai was returning in his Audi car along with friend and actor Premgi after partying at a star hotel. Jai was said to be driving the car and rammed the divider on the Adayar flyover at around 2:30 AM. Jai was arrested by the police and booked under sections 185 (driving by a drunken person or by a person under the influence of drugs) of the Motor Vehicles Act and 279 (rash driving or riding on a public way) of the Indian Penal Code, according to report.

Jai was, however, later released on bail. Reports say that Jai was partying with his friends at a popular star hotel till late in the night and decided to drive back himself along with Premgi Amaren. Jai was involved in a similar incident in 2014 after he rammed into a divider. Police officials have now recommended in their report to cancel the driving license of Jai after being involved in the same case twice. Jai has, however, not responded to any of the reports and has stayed away from the media.

On professional front, Jai is currently working on Balloon which is said to be a horror-thriller and is set to be released by the end of the year. Balloon also features Jai’s rumoured girlfriend Anjali and Janani Iyer. Directed by Sinish, Balloon has music composed by Yuvan Shankar Raja and is being produced under the banner 70MM Entertainments.
