Drink driver turned away from check­point

Wexford People - - NEWS -

A MO­TORIST who turned away from a garda check­point turned out to be over the le­gal limit for al­co­hol, the District Court learned.

Supermarket worker De­clan Downes (28) from 12 Bren­dan Cor­ish Gar­dens, Wex­ford came to the at­ten­tion of Garda Linda Con­way at Clonard Av­enue in the early hours of June 5, 2017.

Solic­i­tor Co­lette Cul­leton de­scribed her client’s be­hav­iour as a one-off, stupid mis­take.

She said that the in­evitable loss of li­cence for two years would make work very dif­fi­cult for Downes. The dis­qual­i­fi­ca­tion came with a fine of €200.
