Drink-driver three times over

MOST people were well behaved over the weekend, Gympie police said.

A spokeswoman yesterday said even though there were a few big events on, like the Bull and Bronc, there were no public nuisance charges.

She said there was one fight police were called to on Saturday night in Mary St.

About six people were involved, but by the time police got there the fight had finished. No one was injured and no one has pressed charges.

Police also conducted a lot of traffic enforcement, including random breath tests over Saturday and Sunday.

A man driving a vehcle along Tin Can Bay Rd was charged with drink-driving while three times over the legal limit.

The spokeswoman said his breath alcohol was 0.172%, and he would appear in Gympie Magistrates Court at a later date.
