CAMBS: Drink driver exposed himself to woman and young children
A CAMBRIDGE man who exposed himself in his car while drink driving has been banned from driving and order to pay �1,770.
Christopher Brunning was driving along Harvey Goodwin Avenue, Cambridge, on February 16 when a woman with two young children saw he was not wearing any trousers and was committing a lewd act.
The woman yelled to a nearby police officer who signalled for Brunning to stop but he sped off.
Cambridge Magistrates’ Court heard today Brunning, of Green End, Comberton, had drunk two pints of lager and a bottle of wine before the offence.
Magistrate Rosemary Cowan disqualified the 62-year-old from driving for 20 months, sentenced him to 100 hours of unpaid work, a 12-month community order and fined him �1,670 with �85 costs and a �15 victim surcharge.
She said: “I think you realise this is a very serious matter and there has been a risk of a custodial sentence, however, we are going to deal with this by way of a community order.”
Brunning, who pleaded guilty to the charges, also asked for another incident of exposure to be taken into consideration.
