A Scottish man has been banned from the road for operating a mobility scooter while he was “unfit through drink or drugs.”
Named as Andrew MacFarlane in the Borders Telegraph, the 41-year-old has pleaded guilty to the offence.
The news source went on to detail how the offence took place in Tulley Court in Glenfield Road West in July of last year.
He also admitted to headbutting a police officer to his injury.
Consequently, MacFarlane has been disqualified from driving for 12 months.
He was also fined £200, £200 for the police assault as well as £100 on each charge for two bail offences.
Last month, AMP reported on a drink driver on a borrowed mobility scooter being prosecuted.
