Amherst-area drunk driver acquitted on necessity defence

A Nova Scotia man has beaten a drunk driving charge using the defence of necessity after he argued he had no choice but to drive an injured friend to the hospital last year.


According to an Amherst provincial court decision released on Tuesday, Roger Pleau and friend Eldon Deegan were drinking beer at Deegan’s apartment in Upper Nappan on Oct. 4, 2012, while their wives went to bingo in Amherst.
