AN apprentice electrician was twice over the drink drive limit when he drove home after a party.
Jordan Connolly, 19, of Belvedere Road, Thornton, admitted drink-driving.
He was banned from the road for 20 months, fined £185 with £85 costs and £20 victims’ surcharge by Blackpool magistrates.
Tracy Yates, prosecuting, said police saw Connolly driving a Corsa erratically on Fleetwood Road at about 5am on October 20.
A breath test showed 70 micrograms of alcohol in his system – 35 is the limit.
Allan Cobain, defending, said his client, who had no previous convictions, had been to a party for a friend who had returned after serving in the Army.
Connolly had fallen asleep on the sofa for a couple of hours.
When he woke up, he did not think before he got behind the wheel.
At the time he believed he was okay to drive.
