A woman has been handed a 16-month driving ban for crashing into six vehicles and punching a witness after drinking 40 shots of Baileys Irish Cream.
39-year-old Maria Mills admitted to counts of drink-driving, dangerous driving and assault, with her solicitor describing her mood as "particularly low" at the time of the incident.
The courtroom heard that the first-time offender caused over €120,000 (£100,000) in vehicle damage along a road situated just two streets from her home in Perth, Scotland.
According to the prosecution, an intoxicated Mills picked up her car keys after having an argument with her partner shortly after 11 pm on February 5th, 2022.
Mills then proceeded to driver her car; crashing into a Kia Ceed, BMW 118, Kia Rio, Vauxhall Corsa, Ford Puma, and Kia XCeed.
Following the incident, Mills stood out of her vehicle, pushing a witness and punching another. The Daily Record states that the defendant was then pinned to the ground by witnesses before police arrived at the scene.
Scottish police confirmed they had received numerous phone-calls reporting Mills dangerous driving.
Speaking for the defendant, Solicitor Pauline Cullerton claimed that his client was "in a state of distress" at the time and regrets her actions.
Mills was sentenced to 200 hours of community service in addition to the aforementioned 16-month driving ban.
