Drink driver fined £400 and banned

AN ARIVEGAIG man who was found to be more than three times over the drink drive limit has been banned from driving for a year and fined £400.

Alexander Thomson, 68, appeared at Fort William Sheriff Court last week and pleaded guilty to a charge of driving a van on September 9 last year in Arivegaig Road while he had a blood alcohol level of 172mg of alcohol in 100ml of blood. The legal limit is 50mg of alcohol in 100ml of blood.

Procurator Fiscal Robert Weir told the court police officers on mobile patrol had pulled Thomson over and found him to have slurred speech on being questioned.
