Driving erratically leads to ban

IGORIS Nikolajevas was stopped by police because he was said to be driving erratically, a court has been told.

Boston magistrates were told that Nikolajevas was stopped on John Adams Way and breathalysed.

Marie Stace, prosecuting, said further analysis at the police station revealed he had 96mcg of alcohol in 100ml of breath. The legal limit is 35mcg.

Lithuanian Nikolajevas, 27, of Main Ridge West, Boston, admitted drink-driving on South Terrace on May 28.

Mark Hudson, representing, said the foreign worker had never been in trouble before. “He had two pints of beer and said he felt OK to drive but he drunk a bottle of brandy the day before which may have raised the level.”

He was banned him from driving for 24 months, fined £250 and ordered to pay £85 costs and £15 victim surcharge.
