Father-of-four loses licence for drink driving in Roma

A diesel fitter and father-of-four who drank four standard XXXX beers and didn’t eat for nearly a whole day has been brought to court for drink driving.

Nihel Bowen Brady, 33, is now $450 out of pocket and without a licence for one month after appearing in the Roma Magistrates Court on January 19, for driving over the general alcohol limit but not over the middle.

He was pulled up by police and blew 0.08 on Charles St, Roma at 8.15pm on December 18, police prosecutor sergeant Heather Whiting told the court.

“[Brady] stated that he had approximately four standard XXXX beers,” sergeant Whiting said.

Solicitor Paul Metcalf handed a character reference to the magistrate.

Brady pleaded guilty but magistrate Peter Saggers didn’t record the conviction.
