Driver Tells Court He Was Drinking Guinness

September 29, 2015

Appearing in Magistrates Court this morning [Sept 29], a 37-year-old man was fined $1,200 and  disqualified from driving after pleading guilty to driving with excess alcohol in his blood.

Craig Canute Mullings pleaded guilty to driving with excess alcohol in his blood in Hamilton in the wee hours of Monday morning 28th September. The police alco-analyzer test showed 331mg of alcohol in 100ml of his blood.

The evidence read out by the Crown Prosecutor was that on being stopped by police, Mr Mullings told police that he had only had two drinks.

This prompted Magistrate Khamisi Tokunbo to ask Mr Mullings: “What was in those two drinks?”

Mr Mullings replied that he had been drinking Guinness.

Magistrate Tokunbo fined Mr Mullings $1,200 and disqualified him from driving all vehicles for eighteen months.
