Drink driver’s car seized
A CHURCH- GOER has had her car seized after she drove while more than four times over the drink drive limit.
Leeanne Lowe, of Young Place in Fort William, admitted at the town’s sheriff court last Wednesday (September 2) driving with 100 microgrammes of alcohol in 100 millilitres of breath, when the limit is 22mcg, at Belford road on the morning of Sunday March 29. Fiscal Michelle Molley said the 40-year- old drove to Fort William Baptist Church at 10.30am where someone reported her to the police as her ‘speech was slurred, she was unsteady on her feet and smelling of alcohol’.
Sheriff Brian Cameron deferred sentence until September 15 for background reports and imposed an immediate driving ban.
Sheriff Cameron also accepted Ms Molley’s request to have the car seized to prevent a risk to ‘public safety’. He added: ‘Not only am I taking the car away, I’m taking temptation away.’
