He said police could smell a strong odour of alcohol on Smith and his eyes were glassy.
Mr Boyd said Smith told police he drank Great Northern beers and wine the night before.
Smith had a BAC of .123.
He was fined $650 and disqualified from driving for 10 months.
Smith was granted a restricted licence for work for the disqualification period.
