Drove to help friend after glasses of wine

Have your say

A MAN who went to pick a friend up from work after drinking three glasses of wine has been banned from driving for three years.

Spalding magistrates heard how Ludwig Ochurub (29) of Market Place, Long Sutton, had been at home with his wife when a friend called to ask for a lift because he was unable to get home.

In mitigation, Mike Alexander said Mr Ochurub hadn’t intended to drive and thought he would be OK with the amount he had drunk.

He was also fined £300 and ordered to pay £85 costs and £15 victim surcharge.
