A BYRON Bay man who gave a blood alcohol reading nearly three times the legal limit has been charged with drink driving and resisting arrest after being caught driving a golf cart in the Hunter Valley.
Police stopped the man, 33, when they spotted him driving a golf cart down Dorsman Drive at Singleton Heights about 12.30am on New Year's Day.
They arrested the man after breath-testing him, but say he tried to run away when they got him to the Singleton police station.
The man was caught and subjected to a breath analysis which returned a reading of 0.143.
He was subsequently charged with mid-range PCA, providing a false name and resisting arrest.
