A 43 year old man, who was stopped by the police for driving with no head lights was breathalysed and found to be almost twice over the drink driving limit.
The driver, Nathan Spencer, blew a reading of 65 micrograms of alcohol in 100ml of breath. The legal limit for drink driving in England and Wales is 35 micrograms.
Appearing at Kirklees Magistrates Court, it was heard that when exiting his car, police noted that he was unsteady on his feet before he took the road side breath test.
The court also heard that Spencer had attended a party that evening and had no intention of drinking. However, he went along with the good time and had a drink. In mitigation the court heard: “It was a very bad decision and now something he very much regrets.”
Spencer was banned from driving for 18 months and fined £300.
