It comes after he was pulled over by Derbyshire Police’s roads policing unit on February 8, after he struggled to “keep the car in a straight line”.

He then tested positive for the two drugs after a drug wipe by officers.

A spokesman for the unit said: “Caught swerving across the road, can’t keep the car in a straight line.

“Perhaps not the type of line he is interested in as provides a positive Drug Wipe for cocaine and cannabis.

“In possession of drugs and using false plates. Arrested.”

He was sentenced to 14 weeks imprisonment with a three year disqualification and £115 costs.
