‘I did the wrong thing’

Whitsunday Times - - NEWS -

A BLOOMS­BURY man told the court he wasn’t car­ry­ing his breath­a­lyzer when he was caught drink driv­ing on Midge Point Rd. Christo­pher Allen Van Muyen, 36, pleaded guilty to low range drink driv­ing at 11.20pm on Oc­to­ber 28, record­ing a read­ing of 0.071. Muyen told the court he made a stupid mis­take and would have to suf­fer the con­se­quences. “At the end of the day I know the rules like ev­ery­one else and I did the wrong thing,” he said.

“I nor­mally carry my breath­a­lyzer in the car.” Mag­is­trate Si­mon Young dis­qual­i­fied Muyen from driv­ing for one month and fined him $400.
