“He provided a positive breath sample, FOUR times the legal limit!

“Thankfully he hadn’t made it far from home before we put a stop to his driving, however, it’s sheer luck that nobody was injured or worse as a result of these reckless actions.

“This morning, the driver will wake up in a cell and be charged to court, where ultimately, he will have to explain himself to a judge.
