Man to face court charged with drink driving

Charged with drink driving

A 55-year-old man from Brunswick East, Victoria will face the ACT Magistrates Court this morning after being caught drink driving last night (Thursday, 11 April 2024). 

About 10.25pm, police were conducting random breath testing on Canberra Avenue, Fyshwick, when the driver of a grey Subaru Forester was allegedly observed turning away from the testing site. 

A short time later, police caused the driver of the Subaru to stop. 

The man underwent a roadside breath screening test which was positive for alcohol. He was subsequently transported to City Police Station, where he returned a breath analysis of 0.195 grams of alcohol per 210 L of breath – almost four times the legal limit. 

He was issued an immediate suspension notice, suspending his right to drive in the ACT for 90 days, and was charged with driving a motor vehicle with alcohol in breath.
