POLICE stopped a Volkswagen Polo on Cowbit Road, Spalding, just before 3am on May 13 and found driver Arturs Eversons was more than twice the drink-drive limit.

Eversons (26), of Commercial Road, Spalding, was banned from driving for 20 months, fined £220 and ordered to pay £85 costs and a £15 victim surcharge when he appeared before town magistrates on Thursday.

Rebecca Ritson, prosecuting, said Eversons was stopped at 2.48am because he was driving “erratically”.

Solicitor Rachel Stevens, mitigating, said Eversons went out drinking that night and had no intention of driving.

But when he got home two friends, who had been visiting, asked for a lift to their address and he gave no thought to the drink he’d had earlier.
