Drink driver four times over the limit sentenced

 

A man has been disqualified from driving for five years and sentenced to an alcohol treatment requirement order after pleading guilty to a drink driving offence.

 

Brendon Head, 39, of Laguna Estate, was sentenced at the Magistrates’ Court this morning (Wed 6 July) for Driving Under the Influence of Drink.

 

Just before 3am on 4 June last month, night shift officers were on patrol in Laguna Estate when they saw Head driving his vehicle very slowly onto Sortie Road, before colliding with a pole.

 

Officers stopped the vehicle and noted that Head’s speech was slurred and he smelt very strongly of alcoholic drink.

 

He was asked to do a roadside breath test, which gave a reading of 150ug of alcohol per 100 millilitres of breath – the legal limit is 35ug.

 

He was then arrested and taken to New Mole House Police Station, where he gave a reading of 136ug on the evidential breath machine.

 

If anyone has concerns about a person driving whilst under the influence of alcohol or drugs, they can call the RGP in confidence on 200 72500 or 199 in emergencies.
