Man caught twice for drink driving

A man was caught drink-driving twice in less than two hours on Thursday, police say.

The man was first caught by police after they received reports that he was revving his engine in the car park of Emu Bank McDonalds at 3.30am.

Police breath-tested the 26-year-old Weetangera man, and took him back to Belconnen Police Station after he returned a positive result.

He returned a blood alcohol content reading of 0.109 at the station, and police suspended his licence and released him to face court at a later date.

Less than two hours later, police discovered the same man on Eastern Valley Way. He again failed a breath test.

He will appear in court on Tuesday.
