A MAN has been fined £200 for riding a moped after having too much to drink.

Samuel Lee Wright, 25, of North Street, was also handed a 16-month ban when he appeared at Barnsley Magistrates' Court.

Wright was stopped by a community police support officer and smelled of drink, said Joanne Lewis Crooks, prosecuting.

Alan Greaves, defending, said Wright had had a couple of drinks at a friend's home.

Wright admitted being above the drink drive limit, having no insurance and driving otherwise in accordance with a licence.

He was ordered to pay £85 in costs and a £20 victim surcharge.
