Driver was three times over the limit
A bartender was banned from the roads for 18 months yesterday after he was caught drink -driving.
Suleyman Bashir, 30, admitted being nearly three times over the legal alcohol limit when his car was pulled over by police on suspicion of speeding.
Magistrates’ Court heard that officers noticed Bashir was unsteady on his feet, his speech was slurred and that there was a strong smell of alcohol on his breath.
A later test showed that Bashir, of Warwick, had 227 milligrames of alcohol in 100 millilitres of blood. The legal limit is 80/100.
The offence happened on Middle Road, Sandys, on May 16. Magistrate Archibald Warner fined Bashir $1,200 in addition to the driving ban.
