1 Mins read

A MAN sleeping in the driver’s seat of a vehicle at the car park at McDonald’s in Coleraine at 8am on Good Friday this year was slow to respond to police who then smelt cannabis.

Andrew Yearl (23), of Agivey Court, Garvagh, appeared at Coleraine Magistrates Court on September 30 and admitted being in charge of a vehicle whilst unfit.

He also pleaded guilty to possessing Ecstasy, ketamine and cannabis.

Defence solicitor John Murphy said the defendant had “fallen out with” his ex-partner and after going to the car park had taken cannabis and tablets and fallen asleep.

Thankfully, the solicitor said, there had been no further drug use.
The defendant was ordered to do 120 hours of Community Service, was banned from driving for a year and was fined £200.
