Crawley magistrates heard that the vehicle was seen’swerving between one side of the roads to the other’.

The alleged incident took place in Broadbridge Heath, Horsham, around three miles from where he and Mr Carr live in a £2.7 million home.

Drayton is charged  with driving with 153mcg of alcohol in 100ml of breath – well over the limit of 35mcg – though he also claims the breathalyser machine was not working properly.

According to the Sun, prosecutor David Holman told the court: “The officer says there was a strong smell of intoxicating liquor. 

“The driver was not stable on his feet at the time and had poor coordination.

“His speech was slurred and his eyes were glazed.”

The case was adjourned to November 23rd, when it will be heard at Brighton magistrates court.
