Aberdeen Sheriff Court
Aberdeen Sheriff Court

A north-east woman went to get her hair cut – and ended up being caught drink-driving.

Jane Glennie, also known as Reynard, had driven a short distance from her home to see a hairdresser on Abergeldie Road, Ballater, on September 20, when a bystander noticed she might be under the influence of alcohol, Aberdeen Sheriff Court heard yesterday.

Police established the 77-year-old had driven her Honda Jazz there.

A breath test revealed she had 58 microgrammes of alcohol in 100 millilitres of breath. The legal limit is 22 microgrammes.

Sheriff Graeme Buchanan banned Glennie from driving for two years.
