Drink-driver is banned for five years

A Sheffield man who drove through Alsager at nearly twice the drink-drive limit has been jailed and disqualified for five years.
South and East Cheshire Magistrates’ Court, sitting at Crewe on 20th July, was told that Tommy Maughan, (33), was driving a Fiat Doblo on 27th June on Lawton Road when he was breathalysed, recording 64 mcgms of alcohol in 100mls of breath. The legal limit is 35 mcgms.
He was sent to prison for 10 weeks, the court saying the offence was aggravated by his record.
He was disqualified from driving for five years, the disqualification obligatory for the offence. He was jailed for a total of 20 weeks, having breached a suspended sentence order made on 24th April, for using threatening, abusive or insulting words or behaviour.
