Driver was almost six times over drink limit.

DRIVER Garry Knight (below) has been jailed for four months after he drove home with almost six times the legal limit of alcohol for driving.

The 42-year-old of Springfield Road, Alcester, was almost home when he was stopped in his red MG ZR sports car at about 10pm on June 15 and arrested.

At Leamington police station tests showed he had an alcohol level of 201 micrograms per 100 millilitres of breath - the legal limit is 35 micro-grams.

Knight had pleaded guilty at an earlier hearing and appeared before magistrates in Leamington yesterday where he was sentenced.

Chairman of the bench Howard Hill told Knight he had been a danger on the roads that night.

Mr Hill said: "We've heard that others tried to dissuade you from driving and yet you intentionally drove home.

"If you had hit any other car or people, I doubt if you would have realised."
