The 25-year-old was arrested by police after driving erratically along Thame Road, Longwick, on August 29th 2012 at 7.10am.

On the morning of his arrest, the 25-year-old was reported to police having been spotted driving erratically by a police officer on his way to work. When stopped by roads policing officers, he failed a field impairment test and was found with Ketamine in his possession.

On arrest and testing, his blood was found to contain Ketamine at a concentration of 0.37 milligrams per litre and Norketamine at a concentration of 1.2 milligrams per litre.
