A DRUNK-DRIVER frightened a woman who was walking alone in the early hours of the morning.

The man was a complete stranger to the woman who ran off because of his behaviour and he then followed her in his car.

As a result 34-year-old Aidan Scott, of Craigleith View, Tullibody, appeared at Alloa Sheriff Court on Thursday, April 28.

He admitted that on September 21, on the A977 Auld Brig Road, Alloa and Tullibody, he drove a car having consumed excess alcohol.

His reading was 75 microgrammes of alcohol in 100 millilitres of breath the legal limit being 22 microgrammes.

He also admitted he shouted towards a woman and thereafter pursued her in Auld Brig Road.

Depute fiscal Ann Orr said the woman was walking to a service station at 2.45am when Scott stopped his car beside her and wound down the window.

He then got out the car to speak to her and told her he was a "nice guy".

She ran off towards the service station and Scott followed her there in his car.

She hid from him when he drove into the filling station before leaving.

Police were contacted and tracked down Scott in Tullibody.

Sheriff Neil Bowie told Scott: "This must have been extremely frightening for the woman and you were also driving at more than three times the limit."

He jailed Scott for 163 days and banned him from driving for 27 months.
