WATCH: Drunk driver allegedly almost 6 times over limit
UPDATE: A TOOWOOMBA woman told officers she was getting a pizza when she was caught driving with a blood alcohol concentration of almost six times the legal limit.
The Newtown woman, 37, allegedly assaulted police after she recorded the highest reading across the state on Thursday with 0.286 per cent.
A Queensland Police Service spokeswoman said officers were patrolling and saw the vehicle driving in Newtown about 11.50pm. Police intercepted the vehicle, which had then turned into a driveway.
Body worn camera footage shows officers repeatedly asking the woman, who was wearing a corset and slurring her words, to put her handbrake on to stop the vehicle rolling back.
The woman is asked if she had any alcohol in the past 12 hours, to which she responded she had - but probably 12 hours ago.
After a breath test confirms she is over the general alcohol limit, she argues with police who told her she was now detained and must go to the police station for further testing.
"Well you are the one who left your kids here in the first place while you were out drink driving," the officer can be heard saying to the woman.
"While I am out drink driving? I was out getting a pizza," the woman says.
Footage then shows an altercation as officers try to detain the woman.
She was charged with one count each of driving under the influence of alcohol and driving a motor vehicle without a driver licence and two counts of assault or obstruct police.
