A man has been charged with high-range drink driving after allegedly being caught more than six times over the legal limit in the state’s Central West on the weekend.

About 5.45pm on Sunday (12 December 2021), officers attached to Central West Police District stopped a white Holden utility on the Lachlan Valley Way, Lake Cargelligo, after receiving reports about the manner of driving.

The driver, a 50-year-old man, was subjected to a roadside breath test, which returned a positive result.

He was arrested and taken to Lake Cargelligo Police Station, where a breath analysis returned an alleged reading of 0.326.

The driver was charged with high-range PCA and had his licence suspended.

He was given a future court attendance notice to appear at Lake Cargelligo Local Court on Wednesday 19 January 2021.
