Un­li­censed driver


DRIV­ING to pick up his friends from the pub while un­li­censed has re­sulted in a Proser­pine man be­ing fined $200 and dis­qual­i­fied for three months.

Ty­rone Phillip Fis­cher, 49, was also fined $440 for pos­ses­sion of dan­ger­ous drugs af­ter he was found with speed.

Po­lice pros­e­cu­tor El­iz­a­beth Smith said po­lice spot­ted Fis­cher do­ing a u-turn in Blair St, Proser­pine, on Novem­ber 9, and pulled him over.

“The de­fen­dant ap­peared ex­tremely ner­vous and un­easy when he got out the car, so po­lice con­ducted a pat down search and found 0.2 grams of a white sub­stance and three nee­dles in his un­der­wear,” she said.

Fis­cher ad­mit­ted he had no li­cence and said he was driv­ing to pick up friends from the pub.
