Driver caught almost four times legal alcohol limit warned he may be jailed


A 56-YEAR-OLD motorist who admitted driving while almost four times over the legal alcohol limit has been warned he may be facing jail.

The Magistrate’s Court heard on Wednesday that Lewis Gary Milne was found to have 132 milligrams of alcohol in 100 millilitres of breath when stopped by the police on Vieux Beaumont in St Peter on 16 September.

The legal limit is 35 milligrams.

The Magistrate, Bridget Shaw, imposed an interim driving ban but adjourned sentencing until 3 November to allow for a background report.

However, she told Milne: ‘This was a very, very high reading, and I am considering custody.’
