Drunk ambulance boss’s driving ban
A FORMER ambulance chief was put under a curfew and electronically tagged after drunkenly crashing his emergency car into a shop window.
Robert King, 48, who resigned as operations manager for the South Central Ambulance Service Trust in Bucks, was three-and-a-half times over the drink-drive limit when he careered over a pedestrian crossing and through railings into the shop before running away from the scene.
He was arrested nearby after stumbling from the wreckage and was taken to hospital where he said: “I’ve f***ed it now. I’ve f***ed my whole life in five minutes.”
King was convicted of drink driving and ordered to spend four months under curfew.
He was banned from driving for 28 months and told to pay £1,000 costs.
