, by , in News, Public Affairs

A man has been disqualified from driving for 16 months at Lerwick Sheriff Court after driving a car while unfit through drink or drugs in Ladies Drive last night.

Sean McLaren, 21, of Ladies Drive admitted the charge after appearing from custody at the court this afternoon. He also admitted failing to provide two specimens of breath for analysis at the police station after his arrest.

Honorary sheriff Arnold Duncan fined McLaren £400 for each of the offences for a total of £800, and gave him the option of a four-month reduction in his disqualification to one year if he attends the drink driver rehabilitation course.
