Findon man arrested on the A24 in Worthing on drink-driving charge

 

A Findon man arrested on the A24 in Worthing is one of another 10 motorists charged with offences during Sussex Police’s summer crackdown on drink and drug-driving.

Kieran Ryan, 46, was arrested at 11.50 pm on June 6th after officers pulled him over on the A24 in Worthing because he was driving erratically.

Ryan, of Stable Lane, Findon, was charged with drink-driving and driving without insurance. He was released on bail to appear at Worthing Magistrates’ Court on June 23rd.

A total of 28 people have so far been charged with offences as part of Sussex Police’s summer crackdown on drink and drug-driving across the county.

As part of Operation Dragonfly, road policing unit officers are on dedicated patrols looking for offenders.

Teams are responding to tip-offs from members of the public who see someone they know has been drinking getting into a car to drive.

Stop checks are also being set up at locations across Sussex and Surrey, in particular at locations where there is intelligence that there has been a history of drink-driving

In previous campaigns, the forces have named all those charged with drink or drug-driving offences that were committed during the month-long crackdown.

In addition, this year the forces will be releasing footage of convicted offenders that shows the state they were in when they got behind the wheel – and how important it is that they are banned from the roads before they hurt anyone.
