Motorist suspended for refusing breath test
A 25-year-old man was banned from the roads yesterday for a refusal to take a breath test.
Shaquille Codrington, of Hamilton Parish, pleaded guilty to failure to provide a sample of breath.
Magistrates’ Court heard that Codrington’s car was pulled over by police on Palmetto Road, near Frog Lane, in the early hours on September 16.
He was stopped after officers saw the car door open and close while it was moving.
Police said Codrington’s eyes were bloodshot, his speech slurred, and that his breath smelled of alcohol.
Codrington told police that he had drank two beers but refused a breath test.
Magistrate Khamisi Tokunbo banned Codrington from driving for 12 months and fined him $800.
