A driver crashed into a wall and ruptured a gas pipe while nearly five times the drink-drive limit.
Richard McKay was charged with posing a danger to the public by causing a gas leak, and with driving dangerously and chasing another car at high speed before the crash.
Fiscal depute Gavin Burton told Dundee Sheriff Court: “A witness was traced nearby in a state of distress. She was the only person there at the time.
“She identified the accused as the driver. The accused was traced shortly afterwards, in the vicinity and walking away.
“He appeared to be under the influence of alcohol and stated he was the driver.”
Recycling worker McKay, 37, of Maxtone Terrace, Crieff, admitted driving while over the limit in Mill Road, Crieff, on March 15. He also admitted failing to give his details after being involved in a collision with a wall and rupturing a gas pipe.
The Crown accepted his not guilty plea to dangerous driving.
Sheriff John Rafferty banned him for three years and fined him £800.
