Drink driv­ing

Whitsunday Times - - NEWS -

A MAN who was caught drug driv­ing has been fined $1000 and lost his driver’s li­cence for six months.

War­ren Wayne Wil­liams, 37, of Can­non­vale, pleaded guilty in Proser­pine Mag­is­trates Court on Mon­day to driv­ing while a rel­e­vant drug was present in his saliva. Prose­cu­tor Robert Beamish told the court cannabis was de­tected in Wil­liams’ saliva when he was stopped by po­lice for a drug test on the Bruce High­way at Lethe­brook at 7.46am on Oc­to­ber 19. Wil­liams told po­lice at the time he had shared a joint the pre­vi­ous evening, Mr Beamish said. Rep­re­sent­ing him­self in court Wil­liams said he had thought he would be all right to drive.
