■ A TWEED Heads woman will face court after she blew double the legal alcohol limit after being pulled over for doing an illegal u-turn. Police said at 10.45am on Thursday, April 12, a grey Nissan Murano was being driven by a 34-year-old woman along Wharf Street, Tweed Heads.
The woman allegedly performed an illegal u-turn at traffic lights before she was stopped by police on Kennedy Drive for a breath test. The test returned a positive result and she was taken to the Tweed Heads Police Station where a breath analysis returned a reading of 0.130.
The woman will appear at Tweed Heads Local Court on May 14 on a mid-range drink driving charge. Her driver’s licence was suspended.
