A DRINK driver who was aggressive and obstructive when arrested has been jailed for four weeks and banned from driving for 42 months.
Andrius Sventoraitis tried to delay giving a breath test at Wisbech police station, asking for a drink of water, a solicitor, and saying he wanted to visit the toilet.
"He became aggressive, he shouted and punched a table top," prosecutor Scheherazade Haque told Fenland magistrates.
Sventoraitis did eventually give a breath sample - with a reading of 90 mcgs of alcohol in 100 mls of breath, more than double the legal limit.

He already had previous convictions for drink driving and driving while disqualified, and had failed to co-operate with the probation service on previous community orders.
Police stopped Sventoraitis in Clarkson Avenue at Wisbech after seeing him driving very slowly on April 2.

"He had a glazed expression and smelled of liquor," said Miss Haque. "At the police station he was obstructive, trying to delay the breath test."
Sventoraitis, 37, of Grosvenor Road, Wisbech, admitted drink driving.
Mitigating, Alison Muir told the court: "He went for a drink with a friend, and foolishly decided to drive the one mile home. He drove slowly because of the bumps in the road.
