A Bristol motorist caught driving erratically was "high on drum and bass" a court has heard.
Delivery driver Aaron Cogley, 25, was pulled over by police after taking a sharp turn and then running two sets of red lights.
Bristol Crown Court was told Mr Cogley "cut up" a motorist and took a turn so sharply that his van rocked on its chassis.
According to Bristol's 'The Post' police carried out a breathalyser test and discovered Mr Cogley was completely sober.
When police asked him about his erratic driving he told them he was "listening to drum and bass [music] and was in a hurry."
David Miller, representing Mr Cogley - who pleaded guilty to the charge in Bristol Crown Court, argued that the defendant was "carried away because of the intoxicating effects of drum and bass music."
Mr Cogley was ordered to undertake 80 hours of unpaid work and was banned from driving for a year.
Passing sentence the Recorder Mr Kevin De Haan QC described drum and bass music as "intoxicating for some. Very irritating for others."
