Singer Paulo Nutini’s lawyers have visited Paisley Sheriff’s court to explain that they have been unable to prepare his defence because he has been touring South America. He was arrested for drink driving in February. He has pleaded not guilty.
His shows in Mexico, Chile, Argentina and Brazil during April have delayed proceedings, however the prosecution has stated that it is still awaiting a forensic calculation of Nutini’s alcohol level at the time. The prosecution also have three witnesses, including two civilians and a police officer.
The matter has been adjourned for trial next month, where Nutini has been ordered to attend. The case against him being that when he was stopped, his alcohol level was 44mcg per 100ml of breath. The current legal limit in Scotland is 22mcg.
