A motorist from Surrey has been banned from driving for eight years after a second drink-drive in less than 12 months.
Joseph Stevens was stopped by police after an officer noticed his vehicle was missing a front registration plate. He was arrested at the roadside but later failed to provide a breath specimen when in custody.
Appearing at Redhill Magistrates’ Court, Stevens pleaded guilty to failing to provide a specimen and driving while disqualified.
Stevens was jailed for 20 weeks and banned for a total of eight years. He was also ordered to pay a criminal courts charge of £150 and a victim surcharge of £80.
