Cape Town - The drunk driving trial of musician Arno Carstens was postponed in the Cape Town Magistrate's Court on Thursday.

Carstens, dressed in a smart blue and grey suit with sunglasses tucked into his shirt, was to have appeared before Magistrate Nadia Banwari.

She was ill and a stand-in magistrate postponed his trial provisionally until 5 August.

Carstens has pleaded not guilty to a charge of drunk driving, alternatively driving with a blood-alcohol level of 0.20 percent.

The 0.20 percent level came from the State's analysis. The legal limit is 0.05 percent.

He was arrested in central Cape Town in December 2010 when a traffic officer noticed his black Mercedes-Benz swerving. publishes all comments posted on articles provided that they adhere to our Comments Policy.
