Drunk T-bone crash
SHAUN Michael Youngman pleaded guilty to three charges on Monday after he caused a car accident while drunk and unlicensed.
Proserpine Magistrates Court heard the 35-year-old tyre worker had been unlicensed since 2008 when he was disqualified by court order and SPER suspension and had never re-applied for a licence.
Police prosecutor Hannah Beard said Youngman got behind the wheel while blowing 0.137, and pulled out in front of a car on February 27 at 7.30pm in Jubilee Pocket causing a T-bone crash.
"He was compliant with police and appeared regretful,” she said.
Magistrate Simon Young slammed Youngman's behaviour: "You were unlicensed, drunk and caused an accident - this is exactly why these laws exist.”
Youngman lost his licence for 15 months and was fined $2000 for both charges, with convictions recorded.
