Man allegedly blew 0.168 in school zone

KILLARNEY police have revealed their horror at discovering a man allegedly driving more than three times over the legal limit in a school zone

The 34-year-old Mt Colliery man was pulled over for a random breath test outside the Killarney school at 2.50pm.

Sergeant Brad Doyle said the man is alleged to have had a blood alcohol concentration of 0.168.

"The horrifying part is he was drink-driving in a school zone, during school hours," he said.

The man's licence was suspended immediately.

He is due to appear in the Warwick Magistrates Court on September 8.
