A ROSYTH drink-driver who was more than six times over the limit struck two cars.

Barry Arnot, 42, of Thomson Place, appeared for sentencing at Dunfermline Sheriff Court.

He admitted that on May 29 on Grange Road, Rosyth, he collided with two vehicles causing damage, failed to stop and provide his details.

He also drove having consumed excess alcohol. His reading was 149 microgrammes of alcohol in 100 millilitres of breath, the limit being 22 microgrammes.

Defence solicitor Stephen Morrison said: “There have been issues with binge drinking and on this occasion he had been drinking for a two day period on and off.”

Sheriff Francis Gill told Arnot: “This was an extremely high reading and it’s only a matter of good fortune that there were not more serious consequences.”

He banned Arnot from driving for two years and imposed a community payback order with nine months of supervision.
