DRINK DRIVE CHARGE: Stacey Stapley eventually stopped in a car park on Friary Lane in Salisbury.


Stacey Stapley from Salisbury, has been charged with a string of offences:

  1. Failing to stop for police
  2. Driving whilst over the prescribed alcohol limit
  3. Driving whilst disqualified
  4. Driving without insurance

Her case will be heard in court early next year.


PC Jamie Boyland of Team 5 Salisbury Community Policing Team said:

“This incident could have been very different had police not intervened. Drink and drug driving will not be tolerated in Wiltshire. We know that many people will be enjoying family visits, work parties as well as many other festive gatherings this Christmas period."

"Remember to sort out your travel arrangements prior to any gatherings to avoid any chances of drink or drug driving. If caught, drink driving convictions carry a mandatory disqualification period of at least 12 months and a potential custodial sentence.”
