Motorist drove after drinking bottle of wine

DRINK-driver Iveta Dicpetrirene drank a bottle of wine and had no idea why she got into her car to drive, a court has been told.

Boston magistrates heard the defendant was seen in a Ford Ka on West Street, Boston, after midnight by police who noted the vehicle had no lights on.

Marie Stace, prosecuting, said the car was stopped on Sleaford Road and officers noted that as it stopped, it mounted the kerb slightly.

“Dicpetrirene failed a road side test and further analysis at the police station revealed she had 60mcg of alcohol in 100ml of breath. The legal limit is 35mcg,” Miss Stace said.

Dicpetrirene, 21, of Castle Square, Wyberton, admitted drink-driving on May 15. She also admitted driving otherwise than in accordance with her licence.

Mark Hudson, representing, said she really had no idea who she got into her car after drinking the wine.

On Wednesday, magistrates banned her from driving for 17 months with a four month reduction if she completes a rehabilitation course.

She was fined £100 and ordered to pay £85 costs and a £15 victim surcharge.
