Woman refused to provide breath sample to police

38-year-old pleads guilty in court

A woman will be sentenced next month after failing to provide breath samples to police following her arrest for suspected drink-driving.

Thirty-eight-year-old Rachele Anette Quayle of Slieau Whallian Park in St Johns appeared before magistrates at Douglas courthouse.

She pleaded guilty to failing to provide a breath sample and not having a valid driving licence on 16 July.

Prosecution advocate Barry Swain told the court concerned members of the public spotted her in her car weaving along Douglas Promenade.

Witnesses called police at around 10:30pm and she was spotted driving into the car park at the Sea Terminal.

As she was about to drive out again, police stopped and arrested her – she failed a roadside breath test and was taken to police headquarters.

However, magistrates heard she failed to complete an evidential breath test there, despite numerous attempts.

She was bailed in the sum of £500 and will appear again for sentencing on 9 September.
