LERWICK man John Fraser has been ordered not to drive a car after appearing from custody at Lerwick Sheriff Court on Monday.
Fraser, of 55 Nederdale, was charged with being more than three and a half times the legal limit for alcohol while driving at the Co-op supermarket car park, Holmsgarth Road, Nedersund Road and other roads in the town.
The 39 year old is also charged with failing to identify who was the driver of the car when he was approached by police at his home on Saturday.
Honorary sheriff Arnold Duncan continued the case without plea and Fraser was released on bail with the special condition that he is not in charge of a motor vehicle before he is due to appear again on 22 August.
The sheriff also deferred consideration of a request by the procurator fiscal to forfeit his Kia Rio car.
