Lawbreaking shot, perhaps before teeing off (5-7)


I believe the answer is:


Here is my best explanation:

'lawbreaking' is the definition.

'shot perhaps before teeing off' is the subsidiary indication.

'shot perhaps' becomes 'drink'.

'before' is a charade indicator (letters next to each other).

'teeing off' becomes 'driving' (golf term).


This clue was last seen in The Times

(Another definition for drink-driving that I've seen is "At the wheel under the influence of alcohol".)
