Naked driver and unrestrained passenger, man charged
THE heat must have gotten to certain drivers over the New Year period where clothes are optional.
Police stopped a vehicle driving recklessly at 4.15am on New Year's Day on Dawson Street, Lismore.
It tailgated one vehicle and overtook another vehicle whilst using a roundabout.
Police stopped the vehicle for a breath test.
They could not help noticing that the driver, a 44 year old Queensland man, was totally naked.
Police also observed that there was a female passenger in the rear of the vehicle lying on a mattress who didn't have a seatbelt on.
He provided a positive breath reading and was taken to Lismore police station.
There he was charged with driving with the Mid Range PCA and drive with a passenger in a part of a motor vehicle where no seatbelt was able to be used.
He will appear in Lismore Local Court in February
