You've never read of a wallet dilemma like this one

WHEN Neil George Woodham drove to Hervey Bay police station to report his wallet missing, he had no idea he was over the legal blood alcohol limit.

The Hervey Bay man was stopped by police as soon as he got in his car after reporting his wallet missing on September 10 and returned a reading of .071%.

The next day, he returned to the police station to see if his wallet had been handed in.

He was again intercepted by police when he got in his car and he returned a reading of .061%.

Woodham said he suffered from depression and anxiety.

He said he had gone to the police station to make a statement and that he had not known he was over the legal alcohol limit and should not have been driving.

Magistrate Stephen Guttridge told Woodham he should have been more cautious.

Woodham was fined $850 and suspended from driving for four months.
