Drink driv­ing pen­sioner, 81,

Ayrshire Post - - News -

A pen­sioner has been dis­qual­i­fied from driv­ing af­ter he was found more than five times over the limit.

Robert Cor­bett, 81, of Mount Av­enue in Syming­ton was found with 113 mi­cro­grammes in 100 mil­lime­tres of breath, ex­ceed­ing the limit of 22.

Ayr Sher­iff Court heard po­lice re­ceived in­for­ma­tion of a sus­pected drink driver at 12.30pm on Novem­ber 1, 2017.

Lawyer Ms Mal­loy told Sher­iff John Mont­gomery that Cor­bett has “clearly had a long stand­ing drink prob­lem.”

She said: “He seems re­morse­ful. “He un­der­stands fully the con­se­quences and clearly ac­cepts he’s never go­ing to drive again.”

The sher­iff dis­qual­i­fied Cor­bett from hold­ing and ob­tain­ing a li­cense for four years and must re­sit his test again in 2022.

He was also fined £ 600.
