Drink-driver facing long ban

Crashed her car while almost three times over the limit

A Peel woman will be sentenced next month after crashing her car while almost three times over the drink-drive limit.

Forty-eight-year-old Beth Houston-McMillan, of Ballellis on the Ballawattleworth Estate, appeared before magistrates at Douglas courthouse.

She admitted drink-driving on 12 May, and the hearing was told she’d crashed her car before a blood test showed she was so drunk she could face a five-year driving ban.

Her case was adjourned for pre-sentencing reports to be prepared, and she was bailed until her next court appearance on 17 October.
