Bulgarian apologises for drink-driving
A Bulgarian man apologised after he admitted drink-driving in Magistrates’ Court yesterday.
Todor Petrov, 34, pleaded guilty to having a blood-alcohol level 46 milligrams above the legal limit.
The court heard that Petrov was stopped by police on Front Street at the junction with King Street last Sunday at about 2am.
Petrov, from Warwick, told police that he had drank “three or four beers”.
A later breath test showed he had 126 milligrams of alcohol in 100 millilitres of blood. The legal limit is 80/100.
Magistrate Maxanne Anderson fined Petrov $1,500 and banned him from the roads for 18 months.
