1 Mins read

A store manager who “took a chance” and decided to drive home from Portrush after drinking collided with a traffic island.

Thomas William Neely (25), of Rusky Park, Aghadowey, came to police attention at Craigahulliar Road near Coleraine on February 3 this year.

The defendant had an alcohol/breath reading of 86 with the legal limit being 35.

A defence lawyer told Coleraine Magistrates Court on February 25 it was the first time the defendant came to police attention and he had also driven for seven years without incident.

On the date in question he had been in Portrush and with his vehicle outside he made a “very poor decision to take a chance and drive home”.

The defendant was banned from driving for 14 months and fined £300.
