Hankey - altercation nantwich - County Lines charged and in court

A 62-year-old man has been sentenced for drink driving after crashing his Ford Ranger into a field in Wrenbury.

William Warrington, from Hollins Lane, Marbury, had left the scene after crashing off Cholmondeley Road between a telegraph pole and a metal gate at around 10.15pm on July 31 this year.

When police arrived, Warrington was not at the scene but members of the public saw him walking across a field away from the vehicle.

The officer stopped him and on smelling alcohol conducted a breath test and Warrington admitted to driving the vehicle.

The test was positive and he was arrested.

He was later summonsed to court to face the charge of driving a motor vehicle when the alcohol level was above the limit.

Warrington was sentenced at Crewe Magistrates to 16 weeks in prison suspended for 18 months.

He was also disqualified from during for 20 months as well as being subject to rehabilitation and prevention measures.

PC Martin Randle, neighbourhood policing officer for Wrenbury and Bunbury, said: “Thankfully, due to people being community-minded and helping us identify this drink driver we were able to catch him in the act and arrest him.

“By getting behind the wheel while under the influence and going on to crash the vehicle shows that he was not fit to drive and posed a risk to other road users.

“Thankfully, he didn’t injure anyone and he is now banned from driving.

“If he commits any further offences in the next 18 months, he faces going to prison for 16 weeks.

“I’d urge residents to keep up the good work of reporting those who break the law to keep people safe and make their community an even better place to live in.”
