Cheltenham Magistrates’ Court has heard how a driver who was twice over the drink driving limit, lost control of his car and ploughed into 5 houses before coming to a stop.
The court heard how the 30 war old driver had been out for a “social drink” before getting behind the wheel.
During his journey for some food, the driver stated how he hit a raised manhole cover before losing control. After the crash, the driver jumped out of the car and ran away from the scene. He was soon caught by a police dog unit.
He took a breath test and was found to be twice over the legal limit for drink driving.
The court heard how the driver suffered a head injury and stated how he had no recollection of the aftermath other than an overwhelming feeling of shock and panic.
He also told the court of the feeling of extreme shame he was suffering.
He was banned from driving for 19 months, given a 4-month community order, a 4-month evening curfew and to pay £535 in costs.
