Tablelands Advertiser - - NEWS -

MA­REEBA res­i­dent Wayne An­thony Brown pleaded guilty to one count of driv­ing a mo­tor ve­hi­cle while a rel­e­vant drug was present in his blood or saliva at Ma­reeba Mag­is­trates court on Mon­day. Se­nior Con­sta­ble Deb Nagy said po­lice stopped the ve­hi­cle he was driv­ing and Brown did not make a con­fes­sion about the drug use. “Po­lice have swabbed him and have found a drug present,” she said. The court heard that Brown was driv­ing cat­tle trucks for 22 years and did drugs to stay awake but had given up driv­ing the trucks and had been driv­ing a trac­tor on a farm. Brown was fined $750, dis­qual­i­fied from driv­ing for three months and a con­vic­tion was recorded.
