Lost driver booze busted

SOMETIMES the term bloody idiot is not strong enough.

After drinking the equivalent of 10 pots of beer and getting lost while driving to a job interview in Torquay, Terence Green stopped at a booze bus to ask for directions.

Instead of getting a map, Green was breath tested.

He recorded a blood alcohol reading of .103 per cent after telling police he had not had a drink for three years.

The 55-year-old Corio man pleaded guilty in Geelong Magistrates’ Court to one count of exceeding .05.

James Halliday, for Green, said his client had been driving to The Sands estate for a job interview before getting lost.

He said Green then drove back along the road where he saw two mates, who gave him a drink of what he thought was soft drink.

Magistrate Jon Klestadt said he had found it hard to accept Green’s story about the soft drink and disqualified him from driving for 20 months. Green also was fined $750.
