Miner drove drunk twice in one night
A DYSART mine worker crashed his car into a parked vehicle at the mine site while intoxicated. After being charged for that he got back behind the wheel.
Jake Ashley Zuiderbann pleaded guilty on Tuesday in Rockhampton Magistrates Court to two charges of drink driving and one of driving while his licence was suspended.
Zuiderbann was placed on a 24-hour driving suspension at 9.30pm on August 6 after police were called to an incident at the camp carpark at 8.55pm. He had a blood alcohol content of .098.
At 10pm, police were called to the carpark and Zuiderbann’s car had been moved. He had a BAC of .058.
Zuiderbann told court he had to move his car as people were throwing things at it.
He was fined $1800 and disqualified from driving for two years and seven months.
