OFFENCES were detected after police saw a driver taking a “long time” at traffic lights.
Jordan Glendinning (24), of Rockfield Row, Cargan, was found to be driving whilst unfit in a vehicle he had taken without authority.
He was also an uninsured and unaccompanied learner driver who failed to stop for police and he was in possession of cannabis.
At Ballymena Magistrates Court on Thursday defence solicitor Liam McKendry said the defendant had taken the car after falling out with his grandfather.
The defendant was banned from driving for a year and fined £400.
