It was a bit chilly today, not freezing, but cold enough for a long sleeve polo shirt underneath the fleece. The job today was Mike Tindall (Zara Phillips’ long term Rugby playing boyfriend) was at Reading Magistrates Court today.

Having managed to drag out the court case for something like 8 months, he was finally found Guilty of Drink Driving and banned from Driving for Three Years.

According to the Guardian Newspaper

The Gloucester and England centre admitted being over the legal limit when police he was pulled over in his Range Rover by police on the M4 near Newbury, Berkshire, on 13 March last year, the morning after a day at the races. He was found to have 91mg of alcohol per 100ml of blood, 11mg over the legal limit.

The 30-year-old, of Minchinhampton, Gloucestershire, was also ordered to pay a £500 fine and £75 costs when he appeared before Reading magistrates’ court.

Tindall, the boyfriend of the Princess Royal’s daughter Zara Phillips, was stopped as he was driving to Twickenham to watch a Six Nations match between England and Ireland.

He was out of the England side at the time because of a liver injury suffered playing against Wales in February, and was due to do a television commentary on the game.
