A drink driver who was rumbled after officers found him ‘clenching’ the car keys with his bottom has admitting breaching a court order.
Kyle Cooper, of Haywood Road, Accrington, was found guilty after a trial at Blackburn Magistrates of drink driving, driving without insurance and an MOT certificate, failing to surrender into bail and all while subject to a suspended sentence order last August.
The 28-year-old, who was nearly twice the drink drive legal limit, was given a 12-month community order at Burnley Crown Court and ordered to carry out 150 hours unpaid work and disqualified from driving for three years.
However the forklift truck driver has now admitting breaching the order by twice failing to turn up to carry out unpaid work on March 5 and 10 this year and failing to keep in touch with his responsible officer between March 5 and March 17.
Nicholas Courtney, defending, said Cooper had already completed more than 70 hours of the unpaid work and ‘is keen’ to complete the work by August. He was given an extra compliance activity requirement and ordered to pay £150 costs.
