A drink-driver travelled from Stonehaven to Dundee before becoming stuck on a kerb.
Ryan Young apologised to police after his car was immobilised at the Kingsway Retail Park, off Clepington Road, on December 23 last year.
The 32-year-old was banned from the roads by a sheriff after being found to be almost four times the limit.
Dundee Sheriff Court heard that numerous calls were made to the police by witnesses about Young’s car swerving on the A90 near Stonehaven.
The car was later spotted at McDonald’s near Forfar.
Young had a near-miss with another driver and was later found stuck on a kerb near the Tesco petrol station at the Kingsway Retail Park.
Police attended and Young, of James Street, Aberdeen, said: “Hands up. I’ve been drinking.”
Young provided a reading of 86 mics of alcohol in 100 mls of breath, exceeding the limit of 22 mics.
Before fining Young £800 and disqualifying him from driving for three years, Sheriff Alastair Brown said: “Drink-drivers kill people.
“You were, by the time you reached the Kingsway Retail Park, four times the limit.
“You were clearly very drunk at Stonehaven and Forfar.
“You drove for a considerable distance and put a considerable number of members of the public at considerable risk.”
