The Morning Bulletin - - ON THE RECORD -

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.
