Our thanks to a number of people for this. Extracts:
The court heard she drank white wine with friends after lunch last October, before purchasing another bottle from an off licence.
She knocked back the alcohol before crashing her Ford Ka in an area busy with pedestrians.
Fowler was so drunk that she was barely able to speak when police arrived at the scene, where officers found an empty wine bottle in the footwell of her car.
She was bailed but was stopped again less than two months later after she had drunk half a bottle of vodka before getting behind the wheel.
Fowler drove around a hotel car park near her family’s luxury home near Wilmslow, Cheshire. Tests showed she was over three times the drink drive limit…
Prosecutor Joseph O’Connor said: ‘Police attended a minor road traffic collision and met the defendant who was clearly intoxicated.
‘She was swearing and slurring her words and they could smell intoxicants on her breath.
‘When they tried to speak to her they had trouble understanding what she was saying, she was incoherent and the officers assumed she was drunk.
‘As she was arrested she admitted that she had drunk two bottles of wine and was taken to the police station.
‘She was described as acting very emotionally and she failed to provide a specimen of breath because she was so upset.’
She was bailed to face court but was held again on December 9 after being caught drinking driving at the Stanneylands boutique hotel in Wilmslow.
Mr O’Connor added: ‘She collided with another car whilst trying to leave the car park of the Stanneylands Hotel.
‘When the police arrived they tried to speak to her, but they noticed a smell of intoxicants on her breath and she was slurring her words.
‘She was taken to the police station and gave two samples of breath. In interview she made admissions and told then she had drunk half a bottle of vodka before deciding to go to the gym.
‘She accepts she shouldn’t have driven. The second offence was committed whilst she was on bail, which is an aggravating factor. She was inebriated during the accident.’
Tests showed Fowler had 112 microgrammes of alcohol in 100 millilitres of breath. The legal limit is 35mg…
JP Martin Drake told her: ‘We have considered all the facts of this case and there are aggravating features; the first offence was committed during the day when there were pedestrians around and the second offence was committed on bail and it was a very high reading.
‘This does cross the custody threshold but the sentence will be suspended and this mean you will not be going to prison today because vagina.
We’ve added two words at the end, but they’re clearly implied.
