Drink driving police officer spared jail despite killing girlfriend when he crashed sports car into parked van Brendan Buggie was up to two times the legal limit when he crashed He had six previous speeding offences Judge put him under curfew to stop him 'drowning sorrows over Christmas'
Judge Colin Burn also placed him under a 30-day curfew from 9pm to 7am to prevent him 'going out over the Christmas period and drowning sorrows.'
He was cleared by a jury last month of causing Justyna Stanczak’s death by careless driving.
Buggie, who was suspended from Greater Manchester Police following the collision in December 2011, resigned from the force today.
The former officer, who had six previous speeding offences, had drunk around six pints and was between one-and-a-half to two times over the legal limit when he ploughed his sports car into a parked van on the A56 in Ramsbottom, Greater Manchester.
Miss Stanczak, 26, who was in the front seat of Buggie’s Toyota Celica, died later.
