A Napier restaurant manager has been caught driving with three times the legal breath alcohol limit.

The legal limit 400mcg of alcohol per litre of breath.

The 46-year-old pleaded guilty to a charge of drink driving in Napier District Court this morning.

It is his third conviction for drink driving.

He was remanded on bail and will be sentenced in March.
