An Elgin woman who was nearly five times the drink-drive limit has been disqualified for two years.
A member of staff at Asda Elgin called the police after chatting to Dian Gunn, also known as Paterson, and smelling alcohol on her breath before spotting her get into her car.
When officers went round to her home on Dove Court, Elgin later that afternoon, they breathalysed the 43-year-old and took her to the station.
While on the way there, Gunn claimed that she had only drunk a bottle of wine the night before.
However, further tests showed she had 102 microgrammes of alcohol in 100 millilitres of breath. The legal limit is 22mcg.
Defence solicitor Robert Cruickshank said Gunn had an alcohol problem she was trying to address.
He said: “Ms Gunn is currently living in Elgin and was in a relationship that was not good for her and caused her lots of difficulties.
“There have been problems with alcohol abuse for months but she has previously had 43 years of good behaviour and this is an underlying issue she is seeking to attend to.”
Gunn pleaded guilty to a charge of drink driving.
Sheriff Olga Pasportnikov gave Gunn 12 months of supervision, 120 hours of unpaid work and disqualified her from driving for two years.
