Just before 4am on Tuesday 14 January, a Whyalla police patrol stopped the man driving a Nissan 4WD on Brook Street for a random breath test.

The 42-year-old man was reported for drink driving after he returned a blood alcohol reading of 0.200 or four times over the legal limit of 0.05.

The man's car was also impounded, his licence was disqualified for a minimum of 12 months and he will be summonsed to appear in the Whyalla Magistrates Court on a date to be set.
