A 65 year old man from Devon faced charges for drink driving when police pulled him over to find he was four times the drink drive limit, whilst riding his mobility scooter.

Mr Spangenberg-Ferrelli was arrested and charged and was due to appear at court for the third hearing in connection with the offence. However, his defence lawyer argued his case claiming that despite the scooter having its own number plate for use on the road it was too small and lightweight to be covered under the drink drive laws he was pulled up on.

He has since been let off and free to wheel away.
