Drink driv­ers

Central Telegraph - - NEWS -

MATTHEW Munro thought he would be un­der the limit when he got the call to help his sis­ter who had just been in an ac­ci­dent. How­ever when he was stopped by po­lice for a ran­dom breath test near Moura on Au­gust 12, he reg­is­tered a mid-range blood-al­co­hol read­ing of .14 per cent.

In Biloela Mag­is­trates Court last week, Munro pleaded guilty to driv­ing while over the mid­dle al­co­hol limit.

He was fined $750 and dis­qual­i­fied from driv­ing for six months, the mag­is­trate al­low­ing a work li­cence in or­der to main­tain his liveli­hood.

CHRISTIAN Wentzel was pulled over by po­lice on June 3 in Moura for a road­side breath test, where he ad­mit­ted he had con­sumed three beers and a Cana­dian club be­fore driv­ing. He reg­is­tered a blood­al­co­hol read­ing of .87 per cent and was or­dered to ap­pear be­fore Biloela Mag­is­trates Court on Au­gust 15. Wentzel ap­peared on one charge of driv­ing over the gen­eral al­co­hol limit. He asked to ad­journ the hear­ing in or­der to ap­ply for a work li­cence.
