Man charged with high-range drink-driving in Petersham

A man will face court next month after he was arrested for alleged high-range drink-driving at Petersham yesterday, NSW Police say.

About 2.35am on Tuesday 31 July 2018, police from Inner West Police Area Command were patrolling Parramatta Road when they saw a Honda Jazz allegedly swerving across lanes and without headlights on.

The officers stopped the driver a short time later for a random breath test and arrested him when he was allegedly unable to supply a sufficient breath sample.

He was taken to Newtown Police Station where he returned an alleged breath analysis reading of 0.288.

The 30-year-old Thai national had his NSW driving privileges suspended and was issued with a field court attendance notice for high-range drink-driving, fail to stop for police when directed and drive with no headlights.

He is due to appear before Newtown Local Court on Thursday 9 August 2018.
