A drink-driver who was caught going through McDonald's drive-thru before racially abusing an officer has been given an electronic tag and placed under curfew for four months.

Cameron Gibson, 22, of The Paddock, South Cerney, pleaded guilty to both offences at Cheltenham Magistrates Court on September 10.

He was stopped in his car by police in the McDonald's drive-thru in Cirencester on February 24 this year.

The court heard how Gibson was found to have 107 micrograms of alcohol in 100 millilitres of breath, the legal limit being 35 micrograms.

Magistrates heard that after being taken into custody in Gloucester, Gibson directed abusive language towards PC Christopher Jones.

The court found that the offence was racially aggravated.

He was given a four-month curfew with electronic monitoring which prevents him leaving the house between 8pm and 6am.

Gibson was also banned from driving for 25 months and ordered to pay a fine and costs totalling £855.
