AN ADMINISTRATOR has been fined £900 and banned from driving for 27 months after refusing to blow into a breathalyser.

Angela Baillie, 37, of Haig Crescent, appeared at Dunfermline Sheriff Court for sentencing after she was caught on CCTV entering a car and appearing intoxicated.

Officers went to her address but she refused to co-operate.

The court heard she also had a previous conviction for drink-driving from 2015.

She previously admitted that on July 4, at her home address, resisted, obstructed or hindered two police constables then in the execution of their duty and refused to be placed in a police vehicle and struggled with them.

Also, at Dunfermline Police Station, without reasonable excuse failed to provide two specimens of breath for analysis.

Depute fiscal Laura McManus received a report from CCTV operators that a female was intoxicated and had entered a vehicle.

A registration was given and police made their way to the town centre.

Enquiries revealed that the car belonged to Baillie so they went to her address.

When the officers arrived there were signs that the car had been driven recently.

They found her in her property and noticed alcohol on her breath.

She responded: "OK it was me".

While being taken to the van, she kicked out and pushed her feet back against it, wriggled and thrashed her arms about, the court was told.

At the police station, Baillie simply refused to give breath specimens for analysis, stating because she "was not drink-driving".

Defence solicitor Ian Beatson said his client was in full-time employment and lived with her son.

"She had been out that night but it's her position that she was not drinking," Mr Beatson said.

"She did not seem to like their attitude and she did not comply with tests.

"She simply did not understand why she was being arrested and reacted.

"She is sorry for her behaviour."
