AN offshore worker was banned from driving for 16 months and fined £840 after crashing his car down an embankment.
Peter Moffat (38), of Chestnut Way, Inverness previously admitted at Inverness Sheriff Court driving while almost five times the legal limit and sentence was deferred for a background report.
Analysis of a urine sample showed a reading of 290mgs of alcohol in 100mls of urine when the limit is 67mgs.
The incident on June 17 last year, in Inverness’s West Link Road, was witnessed by passers-by.
Fiscal depute Sharon Ralph said the car rolled several times and the wheels were still spinning as it lay upside down.
She said: “The fire and rescue service were required to release him. He told police ‘I shouldn’t have been driving.’”
