A Dungannon motorist has been disqualified for a year after being caught drink driving.
Gilberto Thcissuquila, 36, from Drumcoo Green, appeared at Dungannon Magistrate’s Court on Wednesday.
The court heard how the offence came to light on Christmas Day after police found the road at Ashdene Heights blocked by the defendant. A breath test showed an alcohol reading of 58mcg. Police also found that he was driving with no insurance.
The defence solicitor said that the defendant had been drinking and took the foolish decision to drive to his sister’s house
