A man who had been caught drink-driving did not want his girlfriend walking home late at night after dinner at his house, a court has heard.
Daniel Wisniewski, 40, of Thistle Close, Thetford, had been wining and dining his girlfriend at his home on February 4 this year.
After cooking her a meal and enjoying a few drinks, Wisniewski decided to drive her home as she lived far away.
But he was caught by police at around 2am on February 5 after officers noticed he was driving at speed.
At Norwich Magistrates' Court on Tuesday, where Wisniewski pleaded guilty to drink-driving, prosecutor Victoria Bastock said he failed a roadside breath test, with the lowest reading recorded as 67mcg in 100ml of breath. The legal limit is 35mcg.
