A DRINK driving mum told police that she was “f***ed up” after she smashed her gold BMW into a row of parked cars.
Amie Jayne Campbell, 33, today admitted that she had drunk a bottle of wine and a number of cans of lager the night before the incident where several cars were damaged.
Teesside Magistrates' Court heard the hairdresser had “nearly hit a garden wall” before “driving off at speed” in Ormesby, Middlesbrough, on November 14.
The mum, who was “driving erratically” and “swerving on the road” smashed into a parked car which “shunted forward” crashing into other parked cars, TeesideLive reports.
This morning she admitted drink driving and failing to stop after a road traffic collision.
Prosecutor Rachel Butt told how she had been spotted leaving her home by a member of the public who saw her get in her car and make “a few attempts” at a three-point-turn.
They followed her down the road where they saw her “crash into a dark blue car” parked at the side of the road.
Campbell then fled the scene despite the damage to her own car and the witness then contacted the police.
A cop then spotted her “driving in the opposite direction” - and when she stopped the car she made admissions to the officer.
In a “slurred” voice she said: “I’ve had a few bottles of wine.”
She added: “I f***ed up.”
Campbell was arrested, and 116 microgrammes of alcohol was found in 100 milliliters of her breath.
The court heard how Campbell had drunk a bottle of wine and cans of lager the night before and hadn’t had “much sleep”.
Campbell said that it was her dad' birthday - and that he had died a number of years ago.
She explained that on the morning in question she was "driving to the cemetery" when she collided with the cars but "panicked".
Lee Goodchild, mitigating, said she had "drank to excess" but "wanted to be with her father and, unfortunately, the cemetery was the only place she could be with her father".
He also told how she had visited the owners of the damaged vehicles and apologised for her actions.
He said: "That is a great credit to her.”
Campbell was handed a 12-month community order with 12 rehabilitation activity requirement days, disqualified from driving for two years and was also ordered to pay a court bill of £180.
