Drive ban for exceeding drink limit
A SUBMARINER reversed his car into another vehicle while over the drink-drive limit, a court heard.
Daniel Hollett, aged 33, was involved in a minor collision after having two pints of Guinness, Plymouth magistrates were told.
Hollett, of Churchill Cottages, Ugborough, admitted drink-driving on September 14.
Gareth Warden, for the Crown Prosecution Service, said a police officer noticed Hollett arguing with a woman in Ferndale Avenue, Weston Mill, at about 3pm.

He added the woman complained Hollett had reversed his Mitsubishi into her car.
Mr Warden said the officer smelt of alcohol and he was breathalysed. He was found to have 67 micrograms of alcohol in 100 millilitres of alcohol. The legal limit is 35.
David Teague, for Hollett, said he went for a couple of pints of Guinness at a social club after work. He added he thought he was safe to drive, but made a misjudgement. Mr Teague said he cooperated with the police. Magistrates banned him from driving for 18 months, fined him £425, ordered him to pay £85 costs and £15 victim surcharge.
