Insomniac was over the limit
SEVERE insomniac Carl Hamer has been caught drink-driving – after going out for a ride in the middle of the night.
The 43-year-old has suffered with insomnia since being seriously assaulted last year.
The attack left precision engineer Hamer, of Wilmot Drive, Cross Heath, with a fractured skull and bleeding on the brain.
Now Hamer has been hit with a 22-month driving ban after being caught drink-driving in the early hours of January 5.

Hamer admitted the offence when he appeared at North Staffordshire Justice Centre yesterday.
The court heard Hamer had been going to park his car on a car park near where he worked in Vale Street, Stoke, when he was pulled over by police.
Hamer gave a breath-test reading of 92 milligrams of alcohol per 100 millilitres of breath – when the legal limit is 35.
As well as the driving ban, Hamer was fined £265 and ordered to pay £85 prosecution costs when he appeared in court yesterday.
