Drink Drive Interview

0

A motorist has been disqualified from driving after he turned up to a job interview with Greater Manchester Police while “well over” the drink-drive limit.

The force said the unnamed man in his 50s “immediately raised concerns” after staff at its Sedgley Park office smelled stale alcohol on his breath ahead of the interview for an IT management position.

Following the interview, the candidate was breathalysed and found to have 46 micrograms of alcohol per 100 millilitres of breath – above the 35mg limit.

He was charged with drink-driving and later handed a 12-month driving ban at Bury and Rochdale Magistrates’ Court.
