POLICE called to deal with a woman refusing to leave the home of a man she had been in a relationship with found she had been drink-driving.
Susan Pope, 53, admitted she had driven to the property in Holt.
A court heard how she found out that evening a man she had been in a relationship with for between six and nine months was in a relationship with another woman and had been for 15 years.
Pope was found to be more than three times the drink-driving limit.
At Flintshire Magistrates Court at Mold she pleaded guilty to driving a Ford Ka on Friday with 112 microgrammes of alcohol in her breath. The legal limit is 35.
It was her second such conviction and she was banned from driving for three years.
She was also placed on a 12-month community with supervision and a drink impaired drivers’ programme.
Pope, of Ffordd Edgeworth, Wrexham, was also ordered to pay £120 costs.
The court was told she did not intend to drive again.
Prosecutor Justin Espie said when police attended it was clear Pope had been drinking.
She admitted to police she had driven there.
Pope was arrested when she produced a positive reading and she blew the reading of 112 microgrammes at the police station.
Interviewed, she admitted driving after drinking two bottles of Martini.
Damian Sabino, defending, said she had been in an on-off relationship with a man she met and decided to go and see him.
But when she got there she found he was living with another partner and had done so for 15 years.
Mr Sabino said his client had been manipulated by the man.
He said Pope had abstained from alcohol for nine years before meeting him and now intended to return to Alcoholics Anonymous where she had received a lot of support.
It was her intention to give her car to her son and not to drive again.
