Fine and lost licence for drug driving

A MAN who was caught drug driving has been fined $1000 and lost his driver's licence for six months.

Warren Wayne Williams, 37, of Cannonvale, pleaded guilty in Proserpine Magistrates Court on Monday to driving while a relevant drug was present in his saliva.

Prosecutor Robert Beamish told the court cannabis was detected in Williams' saliva when he was stopped by police for a drug test on the Bruce Highway at Lethebrook at 7.46am on October 19.

Williams told police at the time he had shared a joint the previous evening, Mr Beamish said.

Representing himself in court Williams said he had thought he would be all right to drive.
