Scooter rider returns positive breath test

A man riding a motor scooter with two passengers was one of three people processed for drink-driving at the weekend.

Senior Sergeant Bruce Ross said police noticed the trio riding a scooter along School Rd, Mosgiel, at 5.50am on Sunday.

The driver was processed for drink-driving and elected to have a blood sample taken after an initial breath test showed he had exceeded the legal limit, Snr Sgt Ross said.

A few hours earlier, at 3am, police found a woman allegedly asleep behind the steering wheel of a vehicle in Great King St.

She recorded a breath-alcohol level of 822mcg, Snr Sgt Ross said.

At 11.40pm on Sunday, a male driver was processed for drink-driving and elected to have a blood sample taken.

Charges would depend on the results of blood tests.
