Grantham court: Man learns: ‘Don’t drink and drive on an empty stomach’
A Nottingham man was found to be over the drink-drive limit after being stopped driving along Barrowby Road in Grantham.
James Schofield, of Norton Street, Nottingham, was found to have 50mg of alcohol in 100ml of breath.
Rory Macmillan, defending, said: “He says that because of what happened he has learnt his lesson on the impact of alcohol on an empty stomach.”
Mr Macmillan added that Schofield, 29, was “very sorry” for what happened.
Schofield, who is out of work and in receipt of job seekers’ allowance, was banned from driving for a year and ordered to pay a fine of £110. He must also pay a £20 surcharge and £40 in costs.
