Robert Will. a 53-year-old Kittery, Maine man was able to get his drunk driving hearing postponed when he allegedly showed up to court while intoxicated.
According to Portsmouth police, Will was apprehended on June 10th after he was stopped by officers, who reported that he didn’t have a valid driver’s license, had an open container of alcohol in his vehicle, and failed a sobriety test.
He was released after posting $1,000 bail and ordered by a judge to stay away from alcohol and refrain from driving.
Investigators say a court hearing was scheduled for September 27th. When Will arrived, he appeared to be intoxicated and smelled of alcohol.
Court officials administered a portable breath test, which Will allegedly failed. Will’s attorney stated that the hearing had to be rescheduled because his client was required to be sober for the event.
There was no explanation as to why the court did not hold Will in contempt of court for violating it’s previous order.
