Drink-driver damages three vehicles
A Devonshire man was banned from driving for 18 months and fined after he admitted a drink-driving charge.
Magistrates’ Court heard Kimarley Smith, 32, hit a motorcycle and a car as he drove along Mangrove Bay Road in Southampton last Saturday night.
The court was told that Smith’s car hit a parked bike, failed to stop then hit a parked car farther down the road, which was pushed into another car.
Smith told police he had just changed the tyres on his cars and had lost control.
But officers suspected he had been drinking.
Smith told them: “I’m not going to lie. I had one beer.”
The defendant at first refused to give a breath test, but complied when he was taken to Hamilton Police Station.
The test showed he had 100 micrograms of alcohol in 100 millilitres of blood. The legal limit is 80/100.
Magistrate Juan Wolffe also fined Smith $1,200 in addition to the driving ban.
