An attack victim drove after drinking as he tried to escape.
Thomas Marshall was then pulled over by police as he swerved onto the wrong side of the road and hit another vehicle after leaving his hotel.
The 22-year-old pleaded guilty to an offence of driving whilst over the prescribed limit.
The court heard that Marshall was pulled over by police at just before 1am on April 25.
Vanessa Jones, prosecuting, said: “The officers travelling in the Thongsbridge area saw Mr Marshall, initially because there was a problem with the lights.
“That drew their attention but as they followed his car he swerved onto the opposite side of the road and clipped a car which caused damage to both vehicles.”
The officers followed Marshall until he stopped and he claimed that he’d had a pint to drink.
But he failed a roadside breath test and further police station tests showed that he had 68 microgrammes of alcohol in 100 millilitres of breath.
This was almost twice the legal limit of 35 microgrammes.
Carl Kingsley, mitigating, said that on the evening of the incident his client had booked a room at the Pennine Manor Hotel in Scapegoat Hill.
He was there with his girlfriend and they had enjoyed a meal there.
Mr Kingsley said: “During the course of the evening the defendant was assaulted by another male inside the hotel in front of his girlfriend.
“He went outside the hotel and was followed and assaulted again. The defendant then jumped into his car to get away from the person.”
As well as banning him from driving for three years, magistrates fined Marshall £200.
He must also pay £150 court charge, £85 costs and £20 victim surcharge.
