A woman in her 70's has been charged after she was allegedly caught drink-driving in Nambucca after travelling from Taree.
About 2:30pm on Wednesday, officers from Mid North Coast LAC were called to the car park of a Nambucca Heads shopping centre on the Pacific Highway, after reports of a driver allegedly having difficulty manoeuvring a VW campervan.
The driver, a 71 year old woman, was breath tested and returned a positive reading. Police will allege an open bottle of champagne was found in the vehicle’s door drink holder.
She was arrested and taken to Nambucca Police Station where she returned an alleged breath analysis of 0.233 and was charged with high-range drink driving.
She is due to appear at Macksville Local Court on 13 September 2017.
