Louth man, 20, drove car while under the influence of cannabis
Jim Clare, prosecuting, said that at 8.30pm on June 23, Hoggarth was driving a Renault Clio car with three other people as passengers in Churchthorpe, Fulstow, when the officers in a car behind him noticed the strong smell of cannabis and when they spoke to him found that he was ‘clearly under the influence of a substance’.
He said that a sample of blood was taken and he was found to have a reading of three microgrammes of the drug in a litre of blood, the legal limit being two.
Mitigating, Terry Boston said Hoggarth had been a ‘very silly boy’.
He was fined £200 with £115 in costs and charges and banned from driving for a year.
