Drunk driver reported nearly five times over the limit in Victor Harbor

A visitor to Victor Harbor has had his stay cut short, having being reported for drink driving after registering a blood alcohol reading of nearly five times the legal limit.

Just after 9pm last night (Monday July 15) a police patrol stopped a Mitsubishi Pajero on the Esplanade at Victor Harbor for a random breath test.

The driver, a 61-year-old Largs Bay man, was reported for drink driving after he allegedly returned a breath analysis reading of 0.248.

The man also had his licence disqualified for 12 months and his car impounded for 28 days.

He faces a further disqualification when he appears in the Victor Harbor Magistrates at a date to be set.
