The driver was also found breaching a condition of a Release Order. The driver faces charges of Failing to Comply with Breath Demand and Failure to Comply with a Release Order.

The man was released to appear in court at a later date. The vehicle he was driving was impounded for a minimum of 60 days, and his licence was suspended.
