‘Last minute Christmas shopper’ was caught drink-driving

May 20, 2018

A woman who claimed she was doing some “last minute Christmas shopping” was caught drink-driving.

Rebecca Wilkie was stopped by Gardai on December 18th last year after being detected driving in an “erratic manner.”

Ms Wilkie had been out socialising the previous night but her reading, 49 microgrammes of alcohol per 100 millilitres of breath, was still over the legal limit.

Letterkenny District Court was told that Ms Wilkie, of Dromore, Letterkenny, was doing some last minute Christmas shopping when stopped.

Judge Paul Kelly fined the accused €200 and banned from driving for two years.
