A 28-year-old Isaacs man will face court later this month after being caught drink-driving twice within 90 minutes yesterday morning (Sunday, May 5).
Police were conducting a mobile general duties patrol in the City CBD area around 4.45am yesterday when the male driver of a blue coloured Hyundai Lantra was taken into custody after returning a positive road side screening test.
The driver of the Hyundai Lantra was conveyed to the City Police Station, where he recorded a Blood Alcohol Concentration (BAC) reading of 0.180. His licence was immediately suspended.
Police informed the man he would be summonsed for this drink-driving offence, and he was then released.
Around 90 minutes later, the same male driver was again taken into custody after being observed driving a short distance from where he was originally taken into custody.
Breath analysis results indicated the male driver had a BAC reading of 0.153. The driver was conveyed to the ACT Watch House where he was charged with two counts of driving with a prescribed concentration of alcohol and driving whilst suspended.
He will face the ACT Magistrates Court on May 23.
