A DUNBAR man has been found guilty of driving a vehicle while over the drink-drive limit.

Police attended at the home of Keith Groom after he was suspected of drink-driving on the town’s Belhaven Road last year.

Groom was found to have 72mcg of alcohol in 100ml of breath – more than three times the legal limit of 22mcg.

During the incident, Groom, of Warrender Crescent, was also found to be in possession of an offensive weapon, namely a metal bar.

The 27-year-old appeared in the dock at Edinburgh Sheriff Court last Friday.

He admitted being in possession of the metal bar but denied drink-driving. However, he was found guilty of the offence following a trial.

Groom was handed an interim driving ban and will be fully sentenced on May 22.

Groom admitted being in possession of a metal bar at Belhaven Road on September 9 last year. He was also found guilty of driving a vehicle with 72mcg of alcohol in 100ml of breath at the same location and on the same date.
