Drunk driver gets probation

A 20-year-old British man who lives in Malta has been placed on probation for one year after he pleaded guilty to getting drunk and crashing into a villa with a car belonging to his former employer.

He also had his driving licence suspended for one month and was ordered to pay €1,500 in damages.

Thomas Alan Kennedy, who used to work on a yacht berthed in Malta, is now unemployed because his contract expired.

The court heard that he went to a New Year’s Eve party, got drunk, got into the car and drove into the villa. Although he pleaded guilty, he said he did not remember anything of the incident.

He was charged with damaging the car and the villa, driving dangerously and under the influence of alcohol and without licence and insurance cover.

Mr Kennedy could not use his British driving licence in Malta because he is under 21.
