Bad choice

The Northland Age - - Front Page -

A Far North man picked the wrong place to al­legedly try to do a skid — right in front of a po­lice car that was head­ing to a call out. Po­lice said of­fi­cers were go­ing to an in­ci­dent on the state high­way about 1.40am on Satur­day when a car al­legedly did a skid in front of them. The driver of the other car was breath tested and al­legedly had a read­ing of 884 mi­cro­grams of al­co­hol per litre of breath — more than three times the le­gal limit of 250mcg. The 52-year-old was charged with driv­ing with ex­cess breath al­co­hol and had his li­cence sus­pended for 28 days.
