Provisional driver charged with high-range PCA at Moonee Beach

A man has been charged with high-range drink-driving after being stopped on the Mid North Coast yesterday.

About 5.30pm (Saturday 24 October 2020), a member of the public contacted police about a man allegedly driving while intoxicated at Moonee Beach.

A short time later police from Coffs/Clarence Police District stopped a Holden Commodore on Moonee Beach Road.

The driver, a 32-year-old man, was spoken to by police before he was subjected to a roadside breath test, which returned a positive result.

The Dalmeny man was arrested and taken to Coffs Harbour Police Station where a breath analysis returned an alleged reading of 0.197.

The P1 driver was given a court attendance notice for high-range PCA and is due to appear at Coffs Harbour Local Court on 7 December 2020.

The man’s licence was suspended.
