Mugging victim's drink-drive rap

A man who was driving to the police station to report a mugging was stopped by police and found to be three times over the legal limit, Londonderry Magistrates Court has heard.

Mervyn Clarke (53), of Dennet Gardens in the city, admitted driving with excess alcohol on September 14.

The court heard that police saw him appear to stagger to his car, before driving off.

Clarke was stopped and a later blood test revealed he was over the legal limit.

He was fined £150 and disqualified from driving for 18 months.
