Court: Wrexham man loses licence after drink-driving


Zdzislaw Domagala, of Victoria Road, appeared at Wrexham Magistrates Court on Tuesday.

The 61-year-old admitted that on February 4, he drove a Skoda Fabia in Bradley Road, after consuming so much alcohol that the proportion of it in his breath exceeded the prescribed limit.

Prosecutor Justin Espie told the court that on the day of the offence, police spotted the defendant going over a mini-roundabout in Wrexham and were concerned about the manner of his driving.

When the vehicle came to a natural stop, officers spoke to him.

He initially failed to give a breath sample, and was arrested.

But in custody he gave an evidential reading of 43 microgrammes of alcohol in 100 millilitres of breath – the limit being 35.


Mr Espie told the court Domagala had “relevant previous convictions” on his record.

Pierce Blythen, defending, told the court: “He is not someone who appears before the court on a regular basis and accepts the offences.

“He informs me he is not supposed to drink alcohol due to his health.”

The Leader:

Mr Blythen said his client maintained he didn’t have “an issue” with alcohol, and invited the court to deal with him by way of a fine.

He conceded however that Domagala did have previous convictions of a similar nature.

District Judge Gwyn Jones handed down a £220 fine and ordered Domagala to pay £85 costs, as well as an £88 victim surcharge.

He was also banned from driving for three years.
