THE CEO of Me­gavar Power En­gi­neer­ing has lost his driver’s li­cence after drink driv­ing at twice the le­gal limit and weav­ing through Ho­bart traf­fic.

Matthew John Geoghe­gan, 46, faced the Ho­bart Mag­is­trates Court yes­ter­day after he was nabbed with a blood al­co­hol read­ing of 0.121 while driv­ing 100km/h in a 70km/h zone. The court was told Geoghe­gan was caught by po­lice on Septem­ber 28 after he was spot­ted weav­ing in and out of other cars on the Tas­man High­way.

He pleaded guilty to one count of driv­ing over the pre­scribed al­co­hol limit and one count of ex­ceed­ing the speed limit. Geoghe­gan was con­victed, fined $540 and dis­qual­i­fied from driv­ing for 20 months.
