A Tunbridge Wells man was given a 126 day suspended prison sentence and banned from driving for three years for drink driving.

Saulius Butkus, 35, of The Goodwins, was sentenced on 29 January 2013 at West Kent Magistrates' Court, reports Kent Police.

He pleaded guilty to drink driving and driving with no insurance following an incident in Victoria Road on 2 December 2012.

Butkus drove a Honda Accord and when stopped gave a breath test of 151 microgrammes of alcohol in 100 millilitres of breath. The legal limit is 35 microgrammes. 

He also had no insurance.

Magistrates sentenced Butkus to 126 days in prison, suspended for 18 months, and disqualified him from driving for 36 months.

He must also carry out 150 hours of unpaid work within the next 12 months and pay £85 costs and an £80 victim surcharge.

Disqualification can be reduced by nine months if, by 7 February 2015, he satisfactorily completes a course approved by the Secretary of State, the cost of which will not exceed £250.
