Driver jailed after being caught out on South Coast


A man who was charged with driving whilst disqualified and low range drink driving a fortnight ago has been caught behind the wheel on the Princes Highway at Falls Creek.

South Coast Highway Patrol busted the 29-year-old on Monday with three passengers in his vehicle when they stopped him for a breath test.

He returned a negative result but officers realised that he was recently charged with driving offences on May 12.

Police said he faced court for Monday's offence and was sentenced to eight months imprisonment.
