Drink-driver hit Rasen shop front

A DRINK-driver crashed his car and failed to stop when he was pulled over by police, Lincoln Magistrates’ Court was told.

Christopher Robinson, 26, of Lincoln Road, Brookenby, drove off after crashing a Jeep Cherokee into Rhodes Electrical Shop in Oxford Street, Market Rasen on December 4, 2011.

He failed to stop when he was asked to do so by police on the B1203 in Tealby. Robinson was caught in Sixth Avenue in Binbrook two-and-a-half times over the legal drink-drive limit.

He has been remanded on unconditional bail until February 7 and will be sentenced later this year.
