A DRINK-driver was caught out by police as he was on his way to the shops to get more alcohol, a court was told last week.
Kamil Marek was stopped by police in South Street, after officers suspected him of being over the limit, Boston magistrates were told.
When he was tested at the police station he was shown to have 81 microgrammes of alcohol in 100 millilitres of breath.
The legal limit is 35.
Marek, of North Circular Road, London, pleaded guilty to driving while over the prescribed limit when he appeared in court on Wednesday.
John Storer, defending, assured the court that the 25-year-old was not driving back to London when he was stopped on September 16.
He added: “He was here visiting family.
“He had been drinking and he wanted to go to the shops.
“He says he was drinking, not thinking.”
Magistrates banned Marek from the roads for 18 months and ordered him to pay a fine of £170, a £15 victim surcharge and £85 court costs.
