Bartender over alcohol limit
A bartender has been taken off the road after drinking and driving.
Jahdal Williams, 36, admitted driving while over the legal blood-alcohol limit.
Magistrates' Court heard that officers were conducting traffic stops near the junction of Middle Road and Wreck Road in Sandys on August 12 last year.
The Crown said officers stopped a line of vehicles, including Williams, but the defendant overtook the other vehicles and rode away.
Police stopped and arrested Williams after noticing that his breath smelled of alcohol. Williams said: “I'm not drunk. Give me a test and you will see.”
He later provided police with a breath sample, which had 147 milligrams of alcohol in 100 millilitres of blood — almost double the legal limit.
Williams admitted the offence, but denied he had overtaken any vehicles.
Senior magistrate Juan Wolffe banned Williams from driving all vehicles for 18 months and fined him $1,200.
