A man has been charged with high-range drink driving after allegedly being caught more than four times over the legal limit in the state’s south-west yesterday.

About 8.10pm (Saturday 1 January 2022), officers attached to Murray River Police District stopped the driver of a Holden Astra sedan travelling north along Kiewa Street, South Albury.

Police spoke to the driver and sole occupant of the vehicle – a 57-year-old man – before he was subjected to a roadside breath test, which allegedly returned a positive result.

The South Albury man was arrested and taken to Albury Police Station, where a subsequent breath analysis returned an alleged reading of 0.275.

He was charged with high-range PCA and his driver’s licence was immediately suspended.

The man was granted conditional bail and is due to appear at Albury Local Court on Monday 17 January 2022.
