Anger after PSNI take ‘one of highest ever drunk driver readings ever recorded’ in UK | ‘wannabe killer ended up in an innocent person’s garden’ | ‘it’s a miracle we don’t have officers calling at someone’s house tonight, to deliver a death message
A real ‘sense of anger’ has been conveyed by PSNI in Mid Ulster after they “just recorded one of the highest ever drunk driver readings in Northern Ireland and indeed the UK”.
A post on Police Mid Ulster Facebook page - added on Saturday - says: “The Breathalyser couldn’t register a reading when he was tested in the car because it was so high (they have a limit of 220) and when tested in custody after being taken to the station and booked in, he blew 180 on the evidential machine.
“The limit is 35.
“Crews caught this wannabee killer on the Tobermore Road weaving like a snake, he ended up in an innocent person’s garden.”
The post adds: “It’s a miracle that we don’t have officers calling at someone’s house tonight, to deliver a death message to a family of a loved one who has been mowed down and killed.
“Not that the drunk at the wheel of this car seemed to care in the slightest, he was so out of it he’d no concept of what was going on.
“Meanwhile his passenger could barely contain herself as she roared with laughter like it was all some big joke and wanted to know how she was going to get home.
“An altogether pathetic display from the both of them.
“One hundred and eiiiighttyyyy” might sound great at the darts, not going to be so funny when it’s being read out to the Judge.
