Gardai responding to a report of drink driving discovered a Bridgend man sleeping in his car.
Cahir Crossan (35) of the Gap Cafe Building, Bridgend, was before Buncrana District Court charged with being drunk in charge of a vehicle at Bonnemaine, Bridgend on April 22, 2018.
Garda Inspector Siobhan Mollohan told Judge Paul Kelly that Gardai received a report of a drunk driver in the area.
When they arrived in Bridgend, they spotted a car fitting the description of the one that had been reported to them parked on wasteland. When they approached the car they saw the defendant asleep inside.
Defending solicitor for Crossan said his client was a father of two who worked as a carpenter.
He admitted being drunk and was fully co-operative with Gardai.
Judge Kelly convicted and fined Crossan €300 and disqualified him from driving for two years.
