A drink-driver must do unpaid work after being caught more than five times the legal limit.

William Morrison, 20, was caught after witnesses raised concerns about the “manner in which he parked” at McDonald’s, Bucksburn, at around 7.30am on November 18.

Fiscal depute Gavin Letford said witnesses noticed Morrison had slurred speech, glazed eyes and smelled of alcohol and called police.

When they arrived, Morrison gave a positive breath test and 0.7g of cocaine was found in his wallet. Morrison pled guilty to driving with 119 microgrammes of alcohol in 100ml of breath.

The legal limit is 22 microgrammes. He also admitted possession of cocaine.

She also gave him a 12-month supervision order.
