Southern Riverina news - - NEWS -

A 39 year-old man has been charged with drink driv­ing, af­ter al­legedly driv­ing a golf cart while over the le­gal blood­al­co­hol limit.

Po­lice ob­served a golf cart be­ing driven west on Wiruna St, Ba­rooga about 7.30pm on Fri­day.

Po­lice stopped the cart and spoke to the driver, and sub­se­quently ad­min­is­tered a road­side breath test which they al­lege re­turned a pos­i­tive read­ing.

The man was ar­rested and taken to Tocumwal Po­lice Sta­tion where po­lice recorded a breath anal­y­sis read­ing of 0.098.

He was charged with mid range pre­scribed con­tent of al­co­hol and had his Vic­to­rian driver’s li­cence sus­pended pend­ing a court ap­pear­ance.

The man was also charged with driv­ing an un­reg­is­tered ve­hi­cle on a road.

Dis­qual­i­fied driver

A 29 year-old woman pre­vi­ously dis­qual­i­fied from driv­ing un­til 2034 was stopped when al­legedly driv­ing in Tocumwal last Thurs­day, ac­cord­ing to po­lice.

Po­lice stopped a car on the Newell Hwy at Tocumwal about 2.30pm on Thurs­day, and re­port­edly recog­nised the woman.

When asked, she pro­duced a Vic­to­rian learner’s li­cence.

Po­lice checks con­firmed the pre­vi­ous dis­qual­i­fi­ca­tion of a NSW driver’s li­cence, which they say also re­stricted her from ap­ply­ing for or ob­tain­ing a li­cence in another state.

The woman was charged with driv­ing while dis­qual­i­fied and or­dered to ap­pear in Fin­ley court.
