A motorcyclist who was almost three times the alcohol limit has been disqualified from driving for 18 months.

Jordan Simpson, 18, of Dovemount Place, admitted driving a motorcycle in Weensland Road on December 28, 2012, with a breath/alcohol reading of 91mcgs – the legal limit then being 35. He also admitted using the vehicle without a licence and insurance, and assaulting a police officer by trying to bite her and spitting at her.

Simpson also received a cumulo sentence of 60 hours’ unpaid work.
