STONNINGTON: ‘Flemington man blows .181’


A man has had his licence suspended after being detected driving over three times the legal blood alcohol limit in Windsor on Saturday morning (Feb. 6).

Prahran police spotted the man parking a 2019 Ford Mustang in a no standing zone outside a bottle shop on Chapel St just before 3am.

The vehicle was parked a significant distance from the kerb, and when the driver got out, he appeared unsteady on his feet.

Police breath tested the 30-year-old who returned a result of 0.181.

His licence was immediately suspended; the Flemington man is expected to be charged on summons with drink driving related offences.

Police did not impound the vehicle after checks revealed it was a hire car.
