Lincoln drink driver gets 6 weeks in prison

A 25-year-old Lincoln man has been sentenced to six weeks in prison and a three-year driving ban after driving under more than twice the legal alcohol limit.

Lloyd Killner was seen by a police officer driving in an erratic fashion on Long Leys Road in Lincoln just after 8.30pm on Saturday, January 24.

He was breathalysed at the roadside and blew 87mg, more than twice the legal limit of 35mg of alcohol in 100ml of breath.

It was also discovered that he was disqualified from driving at the time.

On January 26 at Lincoln Magistrates Court, Killner, of Hykeham Road in Lincoln, pleaded guilty to driving when above the legal alcohol limit and driving while disqualified.
