Alleged Drunk Driver Five Times Over Legal Limit Caught Twice In One Evening
Forrestfield Police caught a Perth man allegedly drink driving on two separate incidents in one night -- at the same location.
Police were initially called to the scene in Perth's south-east on Saturday night around 9pm after a car crashed through the wall of a building.
The 66-year-old driver failed a breath test -- recording an alleged blood alcohol content of 0.239 percent (nearly five times the legal limit).
He was charged with a DUI and issued with an Immediate Disqualification Notice for driving, after which he was driven home by police officers.
The officers then returned to the scene of the crash to complete an assessment but they noticed an Isuzu truck arriving at the scene -- it was allegedly being driven by the man they had just dropped home.
Officers arrested the man again, who recorded an alleged blood alcohol content of 0.225 percent this time and was charged again.
He was also served with a No Authority to Drive charge because of the earlier incident and the truck was impounded.
The man is due to appear in Midland Magistrates Court on Wednesday.
