Bartender banned from driving for 18 months

A bartender who was seen by police persistently driving his car over the centre line has been banned from driving for 18 months.

Tez Terry, 26, from Hamilton Parish, pleaded guilty to driving while under the influence of alcohol when he appeared in Magistrates’ Court yesterday.

The court heard that on February 25, police saw Terry persistently driving over the centre line on South Road, Warwick, and followed him until he pulled into a parking lot.

When speaking to him, officers saw that his eyes were unfocused and also smelt alcohol on his breath.

He was then taken to the Hamilton Police Station, where a breath test revealed that he had 115.7 milligrams of alcohol in 100 millilitres of blood. The legal limit for driving in Bermuda is 80mg/100ml.

Terry was banned from driving all vehicles and also fined $1,500.
