David McAdie was stopped by police for a random breath test while he was travelling along the Brisbane Valley Highway in Fernvale about 7.40pm on July 3.

The Scotland-born 48-year-old told officers he's only alcoholic drink in the past 24 hours was the beer about 6.40pm.

He said he didn't understand why he was over the limit.
