Men admit impaired driving

Two men pleaded guilty to impaired driving when they appeared separately in Magistrates’ Court yesterday.

Michael Daniels, 56, from Warwick, admitted driving while impaired by alcohol on two occasions.

The first offence happened in Hamilton Parish on April 20, and the second on Court Street on Sunday.

Senior magistrate Maxanne Anderson ordered Daniels, who admitted having a problem with alcohol, to take part in DUI Court beginning on April 30.

Daniels was released on $2,500 bail until that time and was disqualified from driving all vehicles until further notice.

Dennis Trott, 68, also pleaded guilty to impaired driving during yesterday’s court appearance.

The court heard that Trott, from Smith’s, was “loud and aggressive” towards police after his bike collided with a taxi in Devonshire on March 29, when he was taken to Hamilton Police Station.

Ms Anderson fined Trott $1,500 and disqualified him from driving all vehicles for 18 months.
