A man has allegedly returned a breath test reading nearly seven times the legal limit at Maclean on Wednesday.
About 1.15pm a white Toyota Camry was seen driving erratically on the Pacific Highway. Police stopped the vehicle as it turned off the highway onto Yamba Road.
After allegedly returning a positive roadside breath test, the 58-year-old driver was taken to Maclean Police Station. There he allegedly returned a breath test result of 0.341, just under seven times the legal limit.
The man’s licence was immediately suspended and he was charged with high-range drink driving.
He has been granted conditional bail to appear at Maclean Local Court on 13 December 2011.
