A Lochgelly man was caught drink-driving in the early hours of the morning when more than three times over the limit.

Jordan Paterson, 27, of South Street, appeared at Dunfermline Sheriff Court, where he represented himself.

He admitted that on July 16 at The Avenue, Lochgelly, he drove having consumed excess alcohol. His reading was 69 microgrammes of alcohol in 100 millilitres of breath, the limit being 22 microgrammes.

The court was told Paterson was seen by police driving in an erratic manner at 1am and was stopped.

Asked what he wanted to say for himself, Paterson replied: “I shouldn’t have been doing it.”

Sheriff Susan Duff banned Paterson from driving for a year and fined him £210.
