CAUGHT OUT: Yeppoon drink and drug-drivers

These people pleaded guilty in Yeppoon Magistrates Court last week to drink-driving.

After his 5am interception, Swinbank returned a reading of 0.043.

He was fined $450 and disqualified from driving for three months.

Laura Jane Elizabeth Harvey, 27, was caught driving with both methamphetamine and cannabis in her system at Yeppoon on October 12.
