Judge fined £1,200 for drink driving

13 November 2009

Drink-driving judge Bruce Macmillan has been fined £1,200 by Chorley Magistrates' Court after being stopped on the M6 and found to be almost three times over the legal alcohol limit.

The judge, who was described at the time as driving “erratically”, was also banned from driving for two years.

Macmillan, who resigned in September as a judge at Liverpool Crown Court, admitted a second offence of being drunk in charge of a car.

After he was stopped on the M6, he denied drink-driving, but half a bottle of vodka was found on the floor on his car. On the second occasion, he was found asleep behind the wheel of a car with the keys in the ignition in Toxteth, Liverpool, with half a bottle of gin on the floor.
