A self-employed joiner has been banned from driving after he was arrested for drink driving during his stag do. James Whittaker, 31, had been bought a mini off-road bike by his stags as a present and it was given to him on a night out in Honley, West Yorkshire. He was then abandoned by his friends and jumped onto the bike to get back to his best man’s house.
Police saw him wobbling along the road and discovered that he was under the influence of alcohol at 11.30pm on July 13. Magistrates were told that the ban would have a ‘monumental’ effect on his job, but he was banned for 12 months.
