Stephen Mansbridge, 51, leader of Guildford Borough Council was handed a 40 month driving ban after he was caught over the drink drive limit.
The ban, a £1665 fine, £87 court costs and a surcharge of £120 were handed to Cllr Mansbridge at Guildford Magistrates Court on April 30th. The ban and fine were decided after looking at a previous offence committed by Cllr Mansbridge nine years earlier.
He said: “I am deeply sorry for this dreadful lapse of judgement and regret my actions in every sense possible….I commend the officers of Surrey Police for acting quickly and sensibly and fully accept the punishment of the court, which I did not seek to contest in any way.”
