Mazur was sentenced when he appeared at Hastings Magistrates Court on November 12.

He gave a breath alcohol reading of 146 microgrammes. The legal limit is 35 microgrammes. The offence took place on March 4 last year.

Mazur was sentenced to 12 weeks in prison, suspended for one year. Magistrates made a community order with a requirement of 150 hours of unpaid work and ordered him to pay £620 in prosecution costs.

He was banned from driving for three years. Magistrates said the reason for the sentence was due to the high alcohol reading and the fact that a collision took place.
