A drunk motorcyclist has been banned from driving for 17 months after he fell off his bike at a McDonald’s drive-thru.
Cameron Dixon, 28, was caught riding his motorbike more than twice over the limit, after being spotted driving unsteadily over the pavement before falling off his bike.
He was arrested after McDonald’s staff alerted a policeman, who was taking a break at the fast food restaurant in the Admiral Retail Park in Eastbourne, East Sussex.
After being alerted approached by staff, Sergeant Chris Ambrose, who was working a night shift, then approached Dixon at around 1:30am on April 25.
The drunk 28-year-old was later arrested and taken into custody after failing a roadside breath test.

He tested positive for 76 microgrammes of alcohol per 100 millilitres of breath. The legal limit is 35 microgrammes.
Dixon admitted having a drink with his family, while talking to police at the McDonald’s drive-thru.
However, after being taken into custody, Dixon was recorded arguing with police saying ‘I don’t give a f***’ and replying ‘no comment’ when questioned about whether he had been drinking.
At Hastings Magistrates Court on May 10, Dixon, of Whitley Road, Eastbourne, admitted driving over the limit.
Dixon was disqualified from driving for 17 months and ordered to pay a £346 fine, £85 costs, and a £138 surcharge.

Commenting on the case Sgt Ambrose said: ‘The footage shows how unsteady Dixon was.
‘He was in no fit state to be riding his motorcycle that night.
‘He put his own safety, and the safety of other road users, at risk.
‘This case demonstrates the ongoing importance of reporting potential drink-drivers to the police.
‘Drink-driving is one of the main causes of people being killed or seriously injured on our roads, so informing the police really could save someone’s life.’
