Chindris, who appeared in court without a solicitor, also pled guilty to driving without insurance.
Fiscal depute Anna Chisholm told the court the incident happened around 2.50am when police stopped him because he was “swerving” and clipped a kerb.
Sheriff Christine McCrossan fined Chindris, of Hardgate, Aberdeen, £950 and banned him from driving for 18 months.
