A man from Grasscroft has been disqualified from driving for four years after he crashed his car into a garden.
Kyle Stewart was stopped by local officers after his vehicle crashed into a front garden at 9.20am on September 5 last year.
Stewart was arrested close to the vehicle and was later found guilty of drink-driving.
He was sentenced at Tameside Magistrates Court last Thursday, receiving 18 weeks imprisonment suspended for two years.
Stewart was ordered to carry out 100 hours unpaid work, to take in 16 sessions of the driver impairment course, and also ordered to pay court costs of £325 and £128 towards victim and witness services.
He was disqualified from driving for four years.
A post on the GMP Saddleworth and Lees Facebook page read: "Please remember that alcohol takes several hours to clear from your system - if you drive the morning after you may still be over the legal limit."
