A MAN is expected to face court after crashing his car at Tootgarook last week while allegedly being almost five times over the legal alcohol limit.
Police were called to Burdett Street following reports that a blue BMW sedan had crashed into a tree, 7pm, Thursday 11 March (above).
The driver had left the scene and the unregistered car, with false plates, was abandoned.
Police later arrested a 60-year-old man at a nearby house. At the police station he allegedly returned a positive oral fluid test and breath-test reading of 0.233 per cent.
The man’s licence was suspended and he is expected to be charged on summons with driving while over 0.05, drug driving, driving an unregistered vehicle, having false number plates and breaching an interlock condition.
Anyone who saw the crash or who has dash-cam footage is urged to contact Crime Stoppers 1800 333 000 or crimestoppersvic.com.au
