A mother of four was sentenced to community detention for three months along with 12 months of intensive supervision after being convicted of drink driving charges in Dannevirke District Court.
Skye Mogford was charged with her third or subsequent driving offence.
She was also charged with careless driving in respect of an altercation.
On Friday, Judge Keryn Broughton, in reading the summary, said Mogford had been driving along High St, Dannevirke in January when she was stopped to carry out a breath test.
The reading was 600 mcg per litre of breath. The legal limit is 250 mcg.
In April she was involved in a verbal confrontation with a woman before the woman followed her in her car.
Judge Broughton said the front bumper of the woman's car was damaged when Mogford reversed into her.
The victim was shaken and worried about further reprisals.
Mogford was given a six-month suspended sentence on the careless driving charge.
She was ordered to pay reparation of $1422.84 for the damage to the vehicle and to attend any counselling or assessment programmes.
Also in court was Shaquille Mihaere, who was charged with driving with excess breath alcohol.
Judge Broughton noted the summary of facts stated Mihaere had driven to the Caltex service station and purchased food in April this year.
She was observed swerving and narrowly missed an oncoming truck.
When confronted by police, she denied she had consumed alcohol.
However, when tested, it was found she had 974 mcg of alcohol per litre of breath.
Her solicitor advised the judge that Mihaere had no vehicle.
She was disqualified from driving for six months and given supervision for nine months.
She was also ordered to attend an alcohol and drug treatment programme as well as complete 140 hours of community work.
Her outstanding fines were remitted to "give you a fresh start".
Judge Broughton told Mihaere it was an opportunity for her to get her life back on track.
