A DRAMA student has been banned from the wheel after driving to pick up some food after drinking.
Catriona Kelly, of Reed Street in Marsh, admitted drink-driving when she appeared before Kirklees magistrates.
The bench was told that Kelly was stopped by police as she drove along Trinity Street during the evening of November 26.
Their attention was drawn to the 21-year-old because she was driving her Toyota Yaris without a seat belt.
When the officers spoke to Kelly they noticed that her breath smelt of alcohol.
They asked her to provide a roadside breath sample, which was positive and she was arrested.
At the police station Kelly provided two further samples.
These showed that she had 62 microgrammes of alcohol in 100 millilitres of breath. The legal limit is 35mg.
Magistrates were told that Kelly had no previous convictions and passed her driving test in July 2010.
They heard that as well as studying for a drama degree at Huddersfield University she worked part-time in a nightclub.
James Cameron, mitigating, said that on the evening of the offence Kelly had been at home drinking wine.
She later decided that she wanted to go out and get some food.
Mr Cameron said: “She made the mistake of thinking that she was not over the limit.
“She knows she can’t do that. She regrets it and won’t do it in the future.”
Magistrates banned Kelly from driving for 18 months.
They also ordered her to pay £110 fine, £85 court costs and £20 victim surcharge.
