An elderly man has been arrested for drink driving for the third time in a month after being stopped on the A55 in Bangor.

The 71-year-old was found to be over the drink drive limit yesterday lunchtime after giving a reading of 55mg (the legal limit is 35mg) and it was discovered he had already been disqualified from driving.

He appeared in court on remand for the first two offences where he was disqualified for 36 months and ordered to take part in an alcohol rehabilitation programme.

Officers said; “Apart from the three charges this month he has also been charged on another two occasions in the past for drink driving where he was dealt with at court.

“He has been charged with drinking driving, disqualified driving and driving with no insurance and has been remanded in custody once again to appear before magistrates on Monday morning. We have seized his car and had it recovered.”
