    He had downed two bottles of beer, four vodka Red Bulls and two tequila shots before taking an Uber home.

    But he left his iPhone in the taxi and decided to try to track it with his laptop in his car. 

    Cops smelled alcohol when they stopped him near St James’s Park in central London.

    Thandi Lubimbi, prosecuting, said: “He has no excuse. He’s apologetic.”

    Archer, of Wandsworth, South West London, who pleaded guilty, got a 14- month ban at Westminster magistrates court. 

    He was also fined £4,050, based on his weekly income of £3,000.
