A DRINK-DRIVER was warned he was "daft" to get behind the wheel after guzzling too much alcohol. Unfortunately Sean Stillie failed to listen to his pal and found himself in the dock for his boozy behaviour.

It was around 12.30am on Bowling Green Road in Mount Vernon when witnesses spotted the accused getting into a vehicle.

A friend was overheard saying: "Don't be daft, you'll lose your licence."

Stillie, 27, ignored the warning and drove off.

The police were called and the accused was apprehended and breathalysed – to which he failed the breath test.

At Glasgow Sheriff Court, the accused pleaded guilty to driving with 86 microgrammes of alcohol in 100 millilitres of breath – the legal limit being 22mg.

Stillie's lawyer branded the incident on July 31, 2016 as an 'act of stupidity'.

She explained that her client went out to watch the boxing and it was not his intention to drink – but he changed his mind and made the foolish decision to drive.

Sheriff Allan Findlay noted that it was the accused's second conviction of this nature.

Stillie was thereafter fined £500, had his licence endorsed, and was disqualified from driving for three years. The accused, of Rotherwood Avenue, was told that if he completes the Drink Drive Rehabilitation Course his ban will reduce by nine months.
