The 37-year-old was stopped on the A140 near Scole after being spotted by officers swerving on the road and driving with no lights. 

Officers then tested Davis with a breathalyser and the sample he provided showed 63 micrograms of alcohol in breath, almost double the legal limit - which is 35 micrograms.
