Evercreech man facing allegations of dangerous and drink driving
AN Evercreech man has appeared in court facing allegations of dangerous driving, drink driving and failing to stop for the police at Yeovil.
Lee Paul Roberts, aged 25, of Victoria Square, appeared before Somerset Magistrates charged with the offences which are alleged to have been committed on July 28.
He is said to have driven an MG ZS dangerously on Silver Street, Reckleford, Queensway, Sherborne Road and Lyde Road.
He is also alleged to have driven the vehicle with excess alcohol with a breath test reading of 95mcg of alcohol in 100ml of breath. The legal limit is 35mcg of alcohol.
A third offence of failing to stop the car when directed by a police constable was also alleged. Roberts did not enter pleas to any of the charges.
After hearing details of the case the magistrates refused to accept jurisdiction and ordered the defendant to stand trial at Taunton Crown Court.
They adjourned the matter for him to attend a preliminary hearing there on Monday September 23 and until then released him on unconditional bail.
