The driver of a car containing a teenager and a ten-year-old that ran off the road at Byron Bay was four times over the legal alcohol limit, according to police.
They report that at about 4pm on Sunday (September 8), the man was driving red Mazda 3 on Bangalow Road when the car left the roadway and crashed over an embankment, before coming to rest in a paddock.
Fortunately, no-one was injured.
The 45-year-old Suffolk Park man was breath tested and subsequently arrested.
A further breath analysis at Byron Bay Police Station returned an alleged reading of 0.205.
The man was issued a court attendance notice for high-range PCA and his licence was suspended. The children were placed into the care of their mother.
