DRINK-driver Marcus Bond - who gave a breath test reading double the legal alcohol limit - was ordered to carry out 50 hours of unpaid community work this week.
Twenty-six-year-old Bond, of Lynn Road, Chettisham, was also banned from driving for 18 months by Ely magistrates on Thursday.
The court heard how Bond was unsteady on his feet and smelled of liquor when he was stopped driving a red Rover Cabriolet in Cambridge on June 1.
"I had one pint in Ely and then went to Cambridge where I had one and a half pints," he told the court. "I thought I was OK to drive, the police pulled me over because they thought I was driving a stolen vehicle."

Bond had also admitted failing to produce his driving licence and driving his convertible car with a defective tyre on October 10 last year in Little Downham.
He was fined £35 with three points for the tyre offence.
