Drink Driving Penalties

A Judge tells a Nelson driver that his alcohol level of 1551 is the highest he has ever seen.

The driver is obviously lying when he says he had just drunk two handles of beer. Maybe two handles of chartreuse!

But then he only gets sentenced to 120 hours community service, and disqualified for a measly eight months. I would have thought someone showing the highest level the Judge has ever seen, should have the book thrown at them? I mean he was doing u-turns in front of traffic and passing trucks on bends. Suicidal.
