Lance Isaacs busted on boozing binge

Drunk Aussie racer nicked in Cape Town

AFTER A night out drinking and dining with friends from the United Kingdom, professional motorcycle racer Lance Anton Isaacs lied to police at the scene of a collision involving his bakkie, the Cape Town Magistrate's Court heard on Thursday.

Isaacs was charged before magistrate Ingrid Freitag with reckless or negligent driving, to which he pleaded not guilty.

He also faced a charge of driving with a blood-alcohol count of 0,11% (the limit is 0,05%), but due to a blunder in the forensic laboratory concerning the serial number of the blood sample taken from him, he was found not guilty.
