‘Erratic’ driver over the limit in Larne

Police spotted a vehicle being driven “erratically” at The Roddens in Larne at 1.30am on November 27 last year.

Scott McCrory (19), whose address was listed as ‘Raloo village,’ had an alcohol in breath reading of 71 - double the legal limit.

A defence barrister said the defendant had been “through a break-up” with his girlfriend and on the occasion he was caught had “sought solace in alcohol”.

At Ballymena Magistrates Court the defendant was banned from driving for a year and he was fined £300.
