DRINK-DRIVER Andrew Lipton has been told to pay more than £400 and been banned from the roads for 23 months.
The 55-year-old was stopped by the police as he drove his blue Ford Fiesta in Station Road, Hayling Island.
A breathalyser test revealed he had 92 microgrammes of alcohol in 100 millilitres of breath – more than twice the legal limit of 35mg.
Lipton, of Ferry Road, Hayling Island, initially denied a charge of drink-driving. But he changed his plea to guilty before the start of his trial at Portsmouth Magistrates’ Court.
He was fined £280 and ordered to pay £165 in costs.
Lipton’s ban could be reduced by five months if he pays £250 to complete a drink-drivers’ course.
