A man with a provisional licence will face court next month after being charged with high range PCA after he allegedly returned a positive reading nine times the limit.

Police will allege a Holden Cruze was travelling on Lyster Street, Coffs Harbour, with hazard lights on just before midnight yesterday (Saturday 15 July 2017).

The vehicle was stopped and police spoke to the driver, a 23-year-old man, before he underwent a roadside breath test, which returned a positive result.

He was arrested and taken to Coffs Harbour Police Station where he underwent a breath analysis, which returned a positive result.

The man, who had his licence suspended, was granted bail and is due to appear at Coffs Harbour Local Court on Monday 7 August 2017.
