Lawyer denies drink driving
An Auckland barrister has pleaded not guilty to a charge of drink driving.
Fijian-born Satendra Prakash Singh, 60, today entered the plea at the Auckland District Court.
He was charged with careless driving with excess blood alcohol after being stopped by police on Church St, Onehunga in July.
Singh gave a reading of 144mg of alcohol per 100ml of blood - nearly twice the legal limit.
The barrister is representing himself on the charge.
He will re-appear in court on January 30.
