Police arrested the man on indicia - whereby a person is unable to conduct an alcohol or drug test due to displaying signs of being unduly affected by a substance.

After conducting a search of the man and vehicle for safety reasons, police allegedly discovered a hunting knife secured in his pants.

The man was unable to provide police with a lawful reason as to why he was in possession of the knife and will face Proserpine Magistrates Court on October 28.
