So I went to a couple of pubs on a night out and had 2 pints of strongbow. I stopped drinking at about 00:30 and carried on drinking coke. I got in at around 02:30 and decided to drive down to my girlfriends. I grabbed 5 cans I had in the fridge because I wanted them for the rugby the next day. On the way o took a wrong turn and ended up in the middle of nowhere. Trying to find my way back to my route I came across a t junction a bit to fast and crashed, this was at about 03:00 (I wasn’t injured) my phone was dead and I was in the middle of know where. It was -5 and nobody came for about 40mins. I couldn’t stay there any longer as I was freezing. So I neck a couple of cans and decided to walk. I drank the other cans on the way what I thought was home and was pulled over by police at 05:55. I was breathalised and blew 62. I told them I had been involved in a crash and they arrested me. I blew 91 when I got back and have been charged of DUI. I really don’t think I was under the limit when I drove and know it was stupid to drink after, but I was freezing, (only had a t-shirt on and car wouldn’t start) in shock, and needed to get warm so put my beer coat on. Do I have a defence?
