These people pleaded guilty in Yeppoon Magistrates Court last Thursday to drink or drug-driving.

He returned a blood alcohol reading of 0.054.

The court was told that Cooke, a plant operator who was currently unemployed, had no history of a like nature in the past five years.

Magistrate Jason Schubert fined Cooke $350 and disqualified him from driving for one month.
