BANNED: Riseley (not shown) also fined £500

A drink-driving car salesman who refused to provide police with a breath test has been banned for 40months and fined £500.

North-West Evening Mail report that David Stuart Riseley, 25, from Barrow, pleaded guilty to failing to provide a specimen in Furness Magistrates’ Court last Tuesday.

Riseley was stopped by police on March 11, with a roadside test finding he had 88mg of alcohol in 100ml of breath – more than twice the 35mg legal limit.

However, when taken to Barrow police station he refused to provide a further specimen.

On top of his ban and fine, Riseley was ordered to pay court costs of £85 and a £50 victim surcharge.

Magistrates also heard that he would be fired from his job following the conviction.

It is the second time Riseley has been banned from driving; he was disqualified in August 2011 after being found drunk at the wheel.
