A drink driver who scratched and kicked three police officers when they tried to arrest her was on Wednesday fined $10,500 in a district court.

Joyce Lee Hwei Ting, 44, was also banned from driving for 20 months after being caught with not less than 48 mcg of alcohol in every 100 ml of her breath.

She was driving home on the evening of May 8 last year after a drinking session when her car rolled backwards across four lanes of the Central Expressway and collided into another car.

Followed by the other driver, she drove back across the four lanes of the expressway and stopped on the road shoulder.
