My wife was breathalysed one hour after driving home in the house, she was not caught drinking and driving but once home consumed a large amount of alcohol, sufficient to be 6 times over the new Scottish Limit, so she was charged with drink driving but the charge has to be incorrect as she was not caught by the police driving whilst under the influence. She was reported by shop staff where she purchased the alcohol as in their opinion she was under the influence. She got home at 10.07am and consumed bottle of vodka and at 11.10am the police arrived and breathalysed her. I do not condone drink driving and if it is proven she was under the influence whilst driving so be it but the fact remains she was breathalysed hour later and had consumed bottle of vodka.
