A DRINK-driver has been fined and banned from the roads.
Aaron Pearce was stopped by police as he drove a BMW on the Eastern Road in Portsmouth.
After speaking to the 19-year-old, the officers suspected he had been drinking.
A blood test revealed he had 138 milligrammes of alcohol in 100 millilitres of blood. The legal limit is 80mg.
Pearce, of Crofton Road, Southsea, pleaded guilty to drink-driving when he appeared at Portsmouth Magistrates’ Court.
He was fined £390 and told to pay £85 in court costs and £15 into a fund for victims of crime.
The magistrates banned him from driving for 18 months.
His ban could be reduced by four months if Pearce pays £195 to go on a government-approved drink-drivers’ course.
