Popular television actor Ronit Roy was today arrested for alleged rash and negligent driving after his Mercedes car rammed into another car at Amboli in suburban Andheri early today, leading to injuries to four of its occupants, police said.

The 41-year-old actor was arrested under sections 279 (rash and negligent driving) and 338 (causing serious injuries and endangering life or personal safety of others), police sources said.

The incident occurred at around 0700 hrs.

A 56-year-old woman sustained serious injuries and the actor himself took her and three others to the Kokilaben Dhirubhai Ambani Hospital, police said.

Police are awaiting medical reports to confirm if the actor was drunk at the time of the mishap. However, his spokesperson said he was returning from a Diwali party and was not under influence of liquor.
