Drunk captain in a Latvian ship

Drunk captain in a Latvian ship
A Latvian ship captain has pleaded guilty and sentenced to serve four months in prison in the UK for navigating his ship with a blood alcohol content of nearly four times the legal limit.
Captain Andrejs Borodins was found staggering and incoherent by a Dundee harbor pilot while navigating the 1,300 tonne cargo ship MV Fritjord up Scotland’s River Tay in July, BBC reports. The pilot sent the captain to his cabin to sleep it off and he was later arrested when the ship docked in Dundee.
 
Borodins was charged under the Railways and Transport Safety Act 2003 and sentenced to four months in prison, which was reduced from six months for his guilty plea.
 
The Railways and Transport Safety Act of 2003 allows for a BAC of up to .08. The law calls for a maximum penalty of up to two years in prison, a fine, or both in the case of a conviction.
