Marius Tilindis was driving an Alpha Romeo on Mansfield Road, when he was stopped by police on September 6, last year, said prosecutor Sanjay Jerath.

A test revealed he had 81 mcgs of alcohol in 100 mls of breath, when the legal limit is 35 mcgs.

Mr Jerath said Tilindis, who was unrepresented, received a community order and a 28-month ban for drink driving, in June 2019.
