Mum would have been proud – not


Two brothers have had their cars impounded after one was caught over the limit doing a burnout and the other unlicensed in Mornington.

Mornington police were patrolling Main Street when they heard the sound of screeching tyres about 1am Sunday morning.

A Mercedes sedan was found to be doing a burn-out and the air filled with smoke.

The members intercepted the car and found a 24-year-old learner driving with his mum in the car.

The Mornington man returned a positive breath test however refused to accompany police back to the police station for an evidentiary breath test.

He was arrested for being drunk in a public place and his car was impounded for 30 days under hoon legislation.

It is expected he will be charged on summons with refuse to accompany to a station for a breath test, drive a vehicle causing loss of traction, careless driving and drunk in a public place.

A short time later another vehicle arrived at the scene and parked in a disabled car park without displaying a permit.

The 31-year-old Mornington man was found to be unlicensed and the brother of the man just arrested.

He received an infringement notice for unlicensed driving, parking in a disabled parking bay and another notice for altering the car registration plate.

His car, a silver Holden Astra, was also impounded.

Both men will pay $950 in towing and storage costs to get their cars back.
