A FAST food snack turned out to be the downfall of a driver in Hastings on 12 December, after he was breathalysed and returned a reading of 0.246 – more than four times the legal limit.
Around 7pm, police were notified of an erratic vehicle that was almost involved in several collisions.
Police located the vehicle in the McDonalds car park in Hastings.
The driver returned a positive reading on a preliminary breath test and accompanied police back to the Hastings police station for a further breath test which returned a result of 0.236.
The man’s licence was immediately suspended, and his vehicle impounded at a cost of $1170. He will be summoned to appear at the Frankston Magistrates Court at a later date.
