At wheel on drugs


A student has been fined £540 and banned for seven months after he was caught in charge of a car while unfit through drink or drugs.

The incident took place just a stone’s throw from Perth police headquarte­rs, the sheriff court was told.

Twenty-four year-old David Law, of School Road, Forgandenn­y, pled guilty to the offence in Perth’s Caledonian Road, at its junction with Barrack Street, on December 30, 2018.

The court heard that there had been a road traffic accident, the accused was depressed and had then taken drugs.

“He’s very much in a better place now, with a support network in place,”stated lawyer David Holmes.
