June 20, 2018

A motorcyclist has been banned from driving for 18 months after overtaking a police car while over the drink-drive limit.

Dwight Jackson had been on a boat cruise before he got on his motorbike on May 18.

He was stopped after he passed a police vehicle on Palmetto Lane in Devonshire at around 10:40pm.

Jackson, 49 of Hamilton parish, admitted driving a motor vehicle while over the drink-drive limit this morning at Magistrates’ Court.

He told the court he was embarrassed by his actions.

He added: “I did not think I had exceeded the limit while I was on the cruise. This has never happened before.”

Magistrate Khamisi Tokunbo imposed an 18-month driving ban and a $1200 fine.
