  • A Spalding Man Appeared At Boston Magistrate Court where He was Banned For Drink Driving

 

A 26-year-old man who told Police and Boston Magistrates court that he only had one can of beer has been banned from driving for a total of three years.

Edvardas Kratavicius, 26, of Tweed Close, Spalding appeared at Boston Magistrates court after being arrested for drink driving in August of this year. He admitted driving under the influence of Alcohol.

Prosecuting, Becky Alsopp said Edvardas Kratavicius was seen driving his vehicle on August 15th at 11pm with a defective brake light. When police pulled him over and breathalysed him, he failed the test.

He told the arresting officer that he had only one can of beer.

After his arrest he was breathalysed at the police station where he gave a reading of 42 microgrammes of alcohol in his breath, the legal limit being 35.

Edvardas Kratavicius already has a previous conviction for drink driving in 2017.

Mitigating, David Eager said that beers were today much stronger than they had been, and it was possible to be over the limit after a single can of beer.

Edvardas Kratavicius received a driving ban for three years. He was offered a drink drivers’ rehabilitation course, where the driving ban would be reduced by 36 weeks.

Kratavicius was also fined £350 and was ordered to pay £120 in court costs and charges.
