A man was caught driving drunk and over the speed limit in Glasgow.

Blazej Szczesny, 34, was spotted in his vehicle by two officers on patrol at 9.10pm on July 22 on the M73, near Baillieston.

The traffic flow was light, visibility was good and the weather was dry.

Cops saw Szczesny, of Boness, driving at 75mph over a distance of 0.4 miles despite the limit being 50mph.

Officers signalled for him to stop near Carmyle.

The driver complied and after approaching him, officers could smell alcohol. A positive reading was shown following a breath test and he was cautioned and charged.

Szczesny earlier pleaded guilty to speeding and driving with 40 microgrammes of alcohol in 100ml of breath, more than twice over the legal limit.

At a hearing at Glasgow Sheriff Court this week, his lawyer said: "The facts speak for themselves, there was light traffic.

"He lives with his father and works in a factory in Airdrie. He works long and difficult shifts and night shifts as well. He admits there are alcohol issues here."

Sheriff Iain Fleming asked if there could be a treatment plan put in place.

The lawyer said: "He will comply with that."

The sheriff told Szczesny: "Drinking and driving was the more serious charge."

He was sentenced to 12 months of supervision, 100 hours of unpaid work and disqualified from driving for three months.

This could be reduced to 27 days if he completes a rehabilitation course.
