Bean banned for drink-driving
A 32-year-old man was banned from the roads for driving while over the legal alcohol limit.
Calvin Bean, from Pembroke, pleaded guilty in Magistrates’ Court on Wednesday to the offence that happened on Crow Lane on November 24 last year.
Prosecutor Nicole Smith said Bean was stopped by officers conducting stop and searches on Crow Lane at about 11.40pm.
The officers could smell alcohol on his breath and Bean agreed to give a breath sample.
He was taken to Hamilton police station and a breathalyser test showed that he had 88 milligrams of alcohol in 100 millilitres of blood — the legal limit is 80mg.
Magistrate Khamisi Tokunbo fined Bean $1,200 and disqualified him from driving for 18 months.
