Ant McPartlin Was Twice Over Legal Drinking Limit, Reveals Charge Sheet

Ant McPartlin Was Twice Over Legal Drinking Limit, Reveals Charge Sheet

Ant McPartlin was twice over the legal limit following his arrest for drink-driving on 18 March. According to police, breathalyser results revealed a total of 75mg of alcohol, while the UK limit is 35mg.

The court received a police charge sheet which alleges the TV personality "drove a motor vehicle, namely a Black Mini... after consuming so much alcohol that the proportion of it in [his] breath, namely 75 microgrammes of alcohol in 100 millilitres of breath, exceeded the prescribed limit."

The Saturday Night Takeaway star, age 42, was heading back from a dog walk with his mother last month when he lost control of his car at a roundabout in south west London, before being arrested at the scene.

The maximum sentence he would be likely to face amounts to six months in jail - plus a fine and driving ban - according to Mirror Online.

McPartlin was originally scheduled to appear last week at Wimbledon magistrates court, before the case was delayed until later this month.

A spokesperson for the Metropolitan Police told Mirror Online: "No drugs were found on the 42-year-old man arrested or in the vehicle involved in the collision.

At the time, police also said that even though Ant failed a breathalyser test at the roadside, they couldn't confirm whether or not this was because he was over the limit.

Since the incident it has been announced that Ant will be heading back to rehab for the second time to get treatment, having also recently announced his split from his wife of 11 years, Lisa Armstrong.

In the meantime, co-host and long-standing TV partner Declan Donnelly hosted Saturday Night Takeaway solo for the first time last weekend, and was met with a unanimously positive audience response.

"I've got twice the amount of work to do, so we're going to crack on," Donnelly said, in a subtle reference to McPartlin's return to rehab, before moving on quickly to explain what the evening's show had in store.

As Donnelly made his entrance the crowd gave him a standing ovation for going it alone.
