"Safe Jersey - 'The Big Society' - In Action"

Driver on drugs is spared jail

Driver on drugs is spared jail

A HEROIN addict swerved into oncoming traffic and then onto the pavement along Victoria Avenue after taking a ‘huge dose’ of illegal drugs, a court heard on Friday.

At one point the nab hit the central reservation, sending a shower of sparks into the air.

The Royal Court heard that the 24-year-old, who was born in Jersey, had injected 4-5 milligrams of Subutex – a substance prescribed to help heroin users kick their habit – as well as 30 diazepam tablets and had taken two ‘drags’ of cannabis.

He was sentenced to 120 hours’ community service, 18 months’ probation and a fine of £600. He was also banned from driving for two years.
