A drink-driver failed a breath test after being seen pulling away from a Suffolk pub on Christmas Eve.
Keith Noble, 49, was seen driving away from The Woolpack, in Fornham St Martin, at about 2.30pm on December 25.
His black Vauxhall Astra was seen straying over the white line road marking by a patrolling police officer.
Noble, of Shinham Bridge, Great Barton, was pulled over and failed a roadside breath test. He was then taken to a police station, where further tests gave a reading of 84 microgrammes of alcohol per 100 millilitres of breath – the legal limit being 35mcg.
Representing himself at magistrates’ court in Ipswich on Tuesday, Noble said there was no excuse for his actions.
“It was one-off”, he added.
“It was totally my fault.”
