DUNFERMLINE MOTORIST ON DRINK CHARGE – PEOPLE TAKE STARTING HANDLE AS PRECAUTION

Robert Swan Pearson, wireless salesman, 32 Bruce Street, Dunfermline, was fined £2 and disqualified from holding a license for twelve months at Dunfermline Sheriff Court today.

He admitted that, on October 14, in Main Street, Cairneyhill, he attempted to drive a motor car while under the influence of drink to such an extent as to be incapable of having proper control of the vehicle.

Mr W Irvine, procurator fiscal-depute, said accused was seen in the street in Cairneyhill staggering round his car. He got into the car and people in the vicinity dragged him out.

They moved the car round to a close and took away the starting handle to keep him from starting it.
