A driver who swerved into oncoming traffic has admitted being three times over the limit on two separate occasions. 

Ruslanas Kontrimavicius, 45, was seen swerving erratically between lanes on Norwich’s inner ring road on February 11.

Norwich Magistrates’ Court was told witnesses had described him veering into kerbs before nearly causing a head-on crash when he crossed into oncoming traffic.

Sally Harris, prosecuting, said he later blew a reading of 104mg - three times the legal limit of 35.  

It came just three weeks after he had been convicted in his absence of being three and a half times over the limit.

He had been found slumped at the wheel of his Seat Alhambra with the engine running on Dereham Road on April 30 last year.

Police had described him as slurring his words and glassy-eyed with a bottle of vodka and can of beer in the car, said Ms Harris. 

Kontrimavicius, of Dereham Road, Norwich, who spoke through a Lithuanian interpreter, pleaded guilty to drink driving. 

He was given an interim driving ban until he is sentenced on April 26.
