Zara Phillip’s boyfriend banned 3 years for drink driving


Time and time again, people, old enough to know better, get done for drink driving:-

“The 30-year-old Gloucester centre admitted being over the legal limit when he was pulled over by police on the M4 near Newbury, Berkshire, in March last year, the morning after a day at the races.

Tindall, of Minchinhampton, Gloucestershire, was also ordered to pay a £500 fine and £75 costs when he appeared before Reading Magistrates’ Court.

The court heard that police were patrolling the motorway on March 15 last year when their attention was drawn to a Range Rover Sport which appeared to be exceeding the 70mph speed limit.

Victoria Griffiths, prosecuting, said the officers began following at a safe distance and watched the vehicle being driven “erratically” and touching the white lines on either side of the lane.

It then swerved across all three lanes into Reading Service Station, she added.

The court heard that Tindall was arrested and taken to Newbury police station, where he gave a blood test which recorded a level of 91mg of alcohol in 100ml of blood. The legal limit is 80mg.

Tindall had been driving to Twickenham to commentate on England’s Six Nations game against Ireland when he was stopped”
