Charged: driver nine times over the limit at Coffs Harbour

A MAN with a provisional licence will face court next month after being charged with high range PCA after he allegedly returned a positive reading nine times the limit.

Police will allege a Holden Cruze was travelling on Lyster St, Coffs Harbour, with hazard lights on just before midnight on Saturday.

The vehicle was stopped and police spoke to the driver, a 23-year-old, before he underwent a roadside breath test, which returned a positive result.

He was arrested and taken to Coffs Harbour Police Station where he underwent a breath analysis, which returned a positive result.

The man, who had his licence suspended, was granted bail and is due to appear at Coffs Harbour Local Court on Monday August 7.
