Boston drink-driver drove through garden fence then fled scene
A DRINK-driver who drove his car through a garden fence and then fled the scene has been banned from the roads for 20 months.
Grzegorz Kopyt, 43, of Garfits Lane, Boston, was also fined £200 and ordered to pay £85 costs with a £15 victim's surcharge after admitting charges of drink driving and failing to stop after a accident.
Boston Magistrates heard the incident took place in Garfits Lane at about 7.15pm on May 24.
Kopyt drove an Audi A3 through the fence before turning the car around and driving off. He parked the vehicle a few hundred metres up the road and went into his house where he was arrested by police shortly afterwards.

At Boston Police Station he gave a breath test reading of 75 micrograms of alcohol compared to the 35 microgram legal limit.
Mitigating, Beris Brickles said the car belonged to Kopyt's cousin who was in Poland on holiday at the time.
Kopyt panicked when the collision took place as he does not speak much English and feared what reaction the property owners may have had to what happened.
Mr Brickles added Kopyt had subsequently paid to repair the fence and the damage to the car.
