A man found asleep in his car on Brookeborough Main Street has been convicted of being in charge of a vehicle with excess alcohol in his breath.

It was heard at Enniskillen Magistrates Court on Monday how police received an anonymous report after 1am on April 23 about a suspected drunk driver.

Police travelled to Main Street, Brookeborough, where they came across a Renault Megane parked up.

A male, Jason Alexander McCusker (49), of Spout Road, Fivemiletown, was sleeping in the driver's seat with the engine running.

An officer knocked on the window, but this failed to waken McCusker up, the court heard.

They then opened the door and shouted at McCusker, and took the keys out of the ignition, which woke the defendant up.

There was a smell of alcohol from the car and McCusker failed a preliminary breath test. He gave an evidential reading of 79mg of alcohol in 100ml of breath.

McCusker's solicitor, Gary Black, told the court his client had been socialising with friends and intended to phone for a lift home; however, his phone died.

So, he went to the car to charge it and fell asleep, during which time police were alerted and attended. He asked the court to give McCusker credit for his timely guilty plea.

McCusker received 10 penalty points and a £250 fine.
