A 33 year old man who had been caught drink driving, twice in the same day has unsurprisingly, been disqualified from driving.
The court heard that the driver of the car on both occasions was Stephen O’Donnell.
The first of the 2 offences took place when police approached O’Donnell’s car, only to find him sat in the driver’s seat with the engine still warm.
On giving a breath test he gave a reading of some 88mg of alcohol per 100ml of breath.
He was then arrested for the offence of drink driving.
It was only 12 hours later that Mr O’Donnell was seen again, driving in an industrial park.
Witnesses stated that he was getting in and out of the car, shouting and then continuing to drive.
Police were alerted and when they attended found Mr O’Donnell asleep behind the wheel.
When he was breathalysed on this occasion he was found to give a reading of some 129mg of alcohol per 100ml of breath.
After pleading guilty to both offences, Mr O’Donnell was disqualified from driving for 3 years.
