The charge is wreckless driving. Nobody injured, 75mph max on a 9 mile M-way journey. No damage except to own car, driving on rims, sparks flying. Journey ended on top if a small r/bout when son ran home, still unaware.
Its dangerous driving AND drink driving. See previous response.
He has expert witness, a sleep specialist doc who diagnosed parasomnia and agrees the whole episode is feasible.
He didn't exactly leave scene of collision as he didn't crash, just stopped, admittedly on top of a smallish roundabout, then ran home, oblivious.
Then he drank wine. The alcohol he consumed earlier pte driving was 1 pt, 2 g&t and a glass or 2 of Champagne. It is debatable whether that would have taken him over limit as he was driving around 4am and had had drinks around 11pm.
This may or may not have taken him over drink limit, we will never know.
How can they prove he was over limit taking these facts into consideration?
Barrister mentioning sane and insane, different outcomes, even though he is not insane the judge could still go that way, its an archaic law.
