Corby man disqualified from driving after being caught twice over the limit in Old Village
Hugo Fernandes was banned from driving by magistrates
A man from Corby has been disqualifed from driving for 20 months after a court found he was more than twice over the drink drive limit.
Hugo Fernandes, of Samuel Place, Corby, was stopped while driving a 71-plate Fiat 500 on April 30 this year in High Street in Corby Old Village.
The 36-year-old was found to have 175mg of alcohol per 100ml of his blood – the legal limit is 80mg.
Blood tests are used by police officers to test for alcohol levels when breath tests have either failed or are unable to be taken for a range of physical reasons.

Fernandes appeared before magistrates in Northampton on June 26 and pleaded guilty to drink driving, and also to damaging a police car during the same incident.
He was disqualified from driving and ordered to pay £440 in fees and court costs.
