The boozy teenager was met by police after his MG Rover ZR broke down. They found him staggering along the side of the road with a petrol can in his hands – and ordered him to undergo a breathalyser. Davies, of Ammanford, West Wales, was given a 14-month driving ban and told to pay £477 in fines, costs and charges by Llanelli magistrates.
