Paul Rooney has a drink driving case stopped following legal argument

Paul Rooney was instructed on a direct access basis, to defend a gentleman charged with drink driving.

The alleged offence took place at a music festival in County Durham.

Mr E had moved his vehicle that was  in the car park, which was a field, colliding with a tent.

The police were called and Mr E was subjected to a breathalyser test, which he failed, he was arrested and later charged with driving with excess alcohol in his system.

Following Paul’s legal argument that the car park was not a public place the Crown Prosecution Service stopped the case and offered no evidence.

 

Had Mr E been convicted of drink driving it would have resulted in him losing his employment as it was necessary for him to be able to drive.
