He claimed he was being a good Samaritan in driving home his friend who had drank too much at the pub. He was fined £360 and was ordered to pay £85 costs. He was also given 6 points on his licence.
The magistrate had to threaten to remove all members from the public gallery after supporters of Kyle Robinson, including current councillors were involved in a dispute with former Kidsgrove councillor Kyle-Noel Taylor. Mr Taylor has told Whitehill Online "I don't believe any criminal should should sit in the council chamber, I've always said this and maintain this". "Cllr Robinson will have to face the electorate next year during the European elections, time will tell".
Kyle Robinson will now resume is role as Kidsgrove Mayor after saying that he only stepped down whilst this case was on going. He said that he had cross party support to resume this position as a figure head of the town of Kidsgrove.
