England rugby star Danny Cipriani was found guilty of drink driving at Westminster magistrates’ Court.

When breathalysed back the Wasps fly-half gave a reading of 67mg of alcohol per 100ml of breath.

The drink driving trial for Cipriani has been a protracted one with his Barrister making an application to have the case dismissed over lack of evidence from the prosecution. The argument was predicated on the issue evidence in relation to the police station breathalyser working properly.

In delivering the verdict, Cipriani heard from Judge Riddle, who stated: “I am satisfied so that I am sure that the breathalyser test machine was working properly, gave a correct reading, and on that basis the verdict is guilty.”

Cipriani’s solicitors have announced that they would appeal the verdict.

Cipriani was sentenced to an 18 month driving ban, a £4,500 fine and was ordered to pay some £3,120 in costs.
