Immediate suspension for third time drink-driver

A Jerrabomberra man has had his driver's licence suspended after he was caught drink-driving for the third time, police say. 

The 32-year-old was stopped by police on Monaro Highway on Saturday morning after being seen driving erratically. 

He was given a roadside breath test, which allegedly returned a positive result. 

He was later given a full breathalyser, which returned a reading of 0.219, ACT Policing said, 

Police checks later revealed the driver had been caught drink-driving twice previously. 

The man will appear in court on a date to be fixed.
