Repeat drink-driving offender denies alcohol problem
A REPEAT drink-driver who was nearly twice legal limit has denied he has a problem with alcohol.
Michael Lee Guillory, 39, pleaded guilty to driving over the general alcohol limit and driving while his licence was SPER suspended.
On August 5 Guillory was pulled over by a police patrol on Mary St, Bundamba.
When he was asked for his licence he handed them a learner's permit. He told them he was in fact on a P licence but didn't know where his licence was.
Checks revealed his licence had been suspended by SPER since July 18. He was breath tested and registered a blood alcohol reading of 0.086. He told the police he'd had a single mid-strength beer. The court heard he had been convicted of driving over the middle alcohol limit in 2010.
Guillory denied having a drinking problem when asked by Magistrate Roger Stark why he kept getting charged.
He was fined $950 and disqualified from holding a driver's licence for seven months.
