Court papers state that Bernabei, of the city’s Kelvinside, was behind the wheel of a Mercedes A 200 on Bath Street.

It is claimed that the Argentinian had 48 micrograms in 100 millilitres of breath when the limit is 22 micrograms.

Bernabei faces a separate charge of behaving in a threatening or abusive manner at Lola’s nightclub also on Bath Street.

It is alleged that while acting in an aggressive manner, Bernabei “shouted and repeatedly refused to leave the premises despite being requested to do so.”

Bernabei appeared in the dock with an interpreter today at Glasgow Sheriff Court.

His lawyer Callum Ross said: “He tenders a plea of not guilty.

“There is a motion for bail which is not opposed by the Crown.

“They are seeking an additional condition that my client doesn’t enter Lola’s Nightclub and he will accept that.”
