Circumstances of Alleged Breaches

The officer is alleged to have breached the Standards of Professional Behaviour in respect of Discreditable Conduct. On the 18th of April 2022 the officer drove a motor vehicle after consuming so much alcohol that the proportion of it in his breath exceeded the legally prescribed limit, specifically the evidential breath sample recorded 79 micrograms of alcohol in 100 millilitres of breath (the legal limit being 35 micrograms).

The officer is alleged to have breached the Standards of Professional Behaviour in respect of Discreditable Conduct.   On the 6th June 2022, the officer was convicted at Teesside Magistrates Court for driving whilst over the prescribed limit of alcohol as above, having pleaded guilty to the same.

The breaches of the Standards of Professional Behaviour were so serious that they amount to gross misconduct
