A head of the WEDDING car company who was caught driving drinks in a £ 150,000 Aston Martin has been banned from the streets.
Robert Kemp got behind the wheel of the luxury four-door sports car after assaulting a woman in his St. Leonards home.
Around midnight on Sunday, January 12, officers were called to the property on Cedar Avenue after the victim was attacked.
When they arrived, 55-year-old Kemp had driven away in the black Aston Martin Rapide. Kemp advertises the car in its fleet of eight vehicles, including an old London bus available to engaged couples on their big day.
He was arrested on Richmond Park Road in Bournemouth with 45 micrograms of alcohol per 100 milliliters of breath.
The limit is 35 mg.
Last week, Kemp, formerly Cedar Avenue, now Pinewood Road in Ferndown, appeared at Poole Magistrates’ Court to admit attacking a woman by beating her and drinking alcohol.
He also admitted that he was drunk and untidily drunk the following night, Monday January 13th, on St. Paul’s Road near Asda in Bournemouth.
The judges sentenced him to a community ordinance that provides for 40 days of compulsory rehabilitation.
The woman attacked by Kemp will be protected by an injunction until January 2021. Under this order, Kemp is not allowed to return to the property on Cedar Avenue.
He was also banned from the street for 12 months for driving because of drink-driving.
A spokesman for the Dorset Police Department said: “At around noon on Sunday, January 12th, we received a report that a woman had been attacked by a man at an address in St. Leonards.
“It was reported that the man was drinking and driving away from the address.
“Officials stopped the vehicle on Richmond Park Road in Bournemouth and a 55-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of assault and drink-driving.”
