The co-founder of a charity dedicated to helping amputees was banned from the roads for 18 months yesterday for drink-driving.

Ryan Gibbons, 33, pleaded guilty to impaired driving in Magistrates’ Court.

Gibbons was stopped by police officers at a roadside breath test at Queen Street in Hamilton on February 9.

He told police that he had been drinking.

A later breath test showed 132 milligrams of alcohol in 100 millilitres of blood. The legal limit is 80/100.

Mr Gibbons, from Pembroke, helped to start non-profit organisation A New Life.

He is also an award-winning bartender who lost a leg after injuries suffered in a 2008 motorcycle crash.

Magistrate Maxanne Anderson also fined Gibbons $1,500.
