Solar panel installer caught drink-driving
A solar panel installer has lost his licence for one month after he was caught drink-driving.
Kyle James McLachlan pleaded guilty in Gladstone Magistrates Court on Monday to the offence.
The court was told the 24-year-old was pulled over just before 7pm on February 7 for a breath test where he blew 0.077.
Defence lawyer Jun Pepito said his client had intended to apply for a work licence as his employer relied on him to drive, however he was ineligible because he hadn’t started working when he committed the offence.
McLachlan was fined $600 and disqualified from driving for one month.
