He was also 3 times over the drug driving limit for cannabis.

Liverpool Magistrates’ Court heard that police had spotted 24 year old Adam Coulston driving erratically in the early hours of 8 February 2016.

The case details continued that: “It was around 12.40am when a black Ford Focus was observed driving along Speke Boulevard towards the city centre.

“The vehicle was driving at speed and showing poor lane discipline; it was weaving across lanes.

“The car was stopped and officers spoke to the defendant, and noticed the car smelled strongly of cannabis.”

The court was also told that Coulston admitted to the police the he had taken both cocaine and cannabis the night before but thought he was fit to drive.

Coulston, who works as a fork lift truck driver (at the time of sentence), pleaded guilty to 2 counts of drug driving.

The Magistrates banned Coulston from driving for 36 months.
