Police officers had to help a man walk to their vehicle after he was arrested for a collision in Nairn.
Inverness Sheriff Court heard Arturas Zaldokas (55) of Duncan Crescent, Peterhead, ran into the back of another car at traffic lights in Inverness Road, Nairn on August 27, 2020.
He admitted driving with excess alcohol and police recorded a reading of 89mcgs of alcohol in 100mls of breath. The limit is 22mcgs.
It was his third similar conviction and fiscal depute Sharon Ralph told how, after the collision, he was found slumped over the wheel of his car and had to be held up.
Solicitor David Patterson acknowledged his client had a drink problem.
Zaldokas was placed on 18 months supervision, ordered to carry out 300 hours unpaid work and banned from driving for three years.
