THE man from Del Monte said NO when asked by police to provide a breath test.
Igors Arhipovs, who works for the fruit company, had drunk two-thirds of a bottle of vodka at a party before being stopped for driving through a red light.
He became angry at the roadside when officers tried to breathalyse him and tried to walk away.
"He shouted at the officers and did not co-operate," Fenland magistrates were told on Tuesday by prosecutor Nicola Ebbs.

At the police station, a telephone interpreter service was used because Arhipovs can only speak Russian and he became "increasingly agitated and angry".
Arhipovs threw down the telephone in anger, and became more aggressive. He refused to give two specimens of breath and was put in a holding cell until the next morning.

"He would like me to apologise most profusely for his behaviour," said John Clarke, mitigating.
"He had been to a birthday party and drunk the equivalent of 500mls of vodka, then had an argument with his girlfriend and got into his vehicle and drove."
Arhipovs, 35, of West Street, Wisbech, was banned from driving for two years and fined £250 with £55 costs.
