A chef lost control of his car as he drove home from a hog roast in the early hours of the morning.
Blackburn magistrates heard Anthony Ainsworth, who was found to be more than double the drink-drive limit, had a previous conviction for driving with excess alcohol in 2006.
Ainsworth (26), of Salthill Road, Clitheroe, pleaded guilty to driving with excess alcohol. He was fined £400 with £125 costs and banned from driving for 40 months.
Mr Imran Hussain (defending) said Ainsworth had been drinking at work but wrongly believed he would be under the limit.
