A 24-year-old man has been charged after entering a roundabout on the wrong side of the road and drink driving during the early hours of Saturday morning. 

Queanbeyan Police inspector Neil Grey said officers saw a white ute driving dangerously at the intersection of Morisset and Waniassa Street in Queanbeyan around 12.10am.

The 24-year old was stopped for a random breath test by police and returned a positive result.

He was taken to the Queanbeyan Police Station where he returned a blood alcohol reading of 0.075.

Inspector Grey said the man was charged with a low-range drink driving offence and will appear before the Queanbeyan Local Court on October 27.
