A BOURNE woman called police to say she was having trouble with her lodger who had left her address “in drink”.
Police scoured the area on February 25 to look for Wolfgang Saddey’s Renault Scenic and then found him back at his lodgings in Paddington Way.
Jill Derby, prosecuting, said Saddey left his car parked partly on the road and partly on the footpath.
He failed a roadside breath test and later gave a sample showing 79 microgrammes of alcohol in breath, more than double the legal limit of 35.
Saddey (57), now of Grosvenor Road, Billingborough, was banned from driving for 20 months, fined £100 and ordered to pay £85 costs and a £15 victim surcharge when he admitted driving with excess alcohol.
He was given no separate penalty for driving otherwise than in accordance with his licence.
Saddey told the court he had lost his son in an accident and his daughter had also been injured in an accident and is in a wheelchair.
He said he intends to return to Germany to start a business and currently has no job or income.
