An Exmouth teenager has been banned from driving for 18 months after pleading guilty to being behind the wheel while nearly twice over the legal limit.

Cameron Brown, aged 19, of The Marles, appeared before Exeter Magistrates on Tuesday, after being arrested for driving while over the limit on June 9.

He was fined £525 and disqualified for 18 months by the magistrates bench.

Prosecutor Lindsey Baker told the court that police officers pursued the defendant’s car, a VW Polo, after it had veered onto the other side of the road while driving past the Pyramids swimming pool in Exeter.

She said the defendant then pulled up into a bus stop on Heavitree Road in an ‘uncontrollable fashion’.

He was breathalysed and found to have 68 microgrammes of alcohol in 100 millilitres of breath.

In mitigation, James Rickard, said the defendant had been persuaded to stay out that night, adding: “This was a silly mistake on his part.”
