A man has been caught for drink driving whilst being in a McDonalds car park.
The driver, Scott William Thomson was found to be 3 times over the legal drink driving limit when he blew a reading of 122mg of alcohol per 100ml of breath. The legal limit is 35mg.
At the time of the offence Mr Thomson had been driving his Ford Transit van in the car park.
When sentencing, the court heard that this was the 4th time that Mr Thomson had been before the courts with similar matters and decided that this offence now passed the custody threshold.
In sentencing, the Magistrates disqualified Mr Thomson from driving for 3 years, imposed a suspended 12 week prison sentence and 100 hours unpaid work. He also had to pay an £80 victim surcharge and £135 court costs.
