A man accused of driving the wrong way along a dual carriageway while under the influence of alcohol withheld his plea in court.
Paul Ceparu, 23, was allegedly spotted driving his silver Mazda 6 the wrong way along the A2070 Bad Munstereifel Road in Ashford on the evening of November 25, when police were alerted.
A patrol later discovered Ceparu, of Christchurch Road in South Ashford, inside the vehicle in Field Road and over the drink-drive limit, Folkestone Magistrates’ Court heard last Wednesday.
Ceparu, who appeared before magistrates with the aid of an interpreter, was also accused of being found to be uninsured on the vehicle.
Defence lawyer Alan Land told magistrates his client’s plea was withheld while experts investigate an alleged fault on the car.
Ceparu, who was dressed in green jogging bottoms, a light colour jumper and trainers, was released on unconditional bail and will appear before Canterbury Crown Court on January 30.
