Fight night in the Bunnings car park

By 18 November 2011 31

A 20-year-old man was apprehended for driving with an Alcohol Content (AC) of 0.151 last night (Thursday, November 17) in Canberra’s north.

Around 10.20pm last night, police attended the Bunnings car park in Lathlain Street Belconnen after it was reported that a group of people were fighting and drinking at that location.

Police attended the car park where they spoke to the 20-year-old driver of a white Holden station-wagon, a non-licence holder from NSW. The driver underwent a roadside screening test which returned a positive result. As police were speaking to the man, he ran from them across the car park.

The man was arrested a short distance away and taken to the Belconnen Police Station where a further test revealed his alcohol content (AC) to be 0.151.

The man will be summonsed to appear at the ACT Magistrates Court at a later date where he will face drink-driving, driving while unlicensed, escape custody and resist police charges.

This recent incident comes after Belconnen Patrol members conducted a targeted operation on Thursday morning (November 17) where seven drink-drivers were caught.

Police will continue to target drink-driving until the end of the year.
