Phone charging


A MT ELIZA man who had his car impounded for speeding and drug-driving at Langwarrin early Monday morning had devised a novel way of charging his mobile phone. The 38-year-old was running a lead from the battery, through an open side window and into the phone.

Senior Constable Greg Wolfe, of Somerville Highway Patrol, said: “Most of us have a charging cord of some type in our cars for charging up our mobile phone.

“When you drive a car that’s a bit of a wreck inside, and doesn’t have a functioning cigarette lighter socket, it can be a challenge though.

“When you take illicit drugs you probably come up with what seem like good ideas and put them into practice as well.”
