Disgruntled shopper caught twice driving unlicensed

A DISGRUNTLED shopper who caused a scene at a Hervey Bay supermarket after her card was declined later returned to abuse staff a second time.

But her outbursts were caught on CCTV footage and clearly showed her driving a vehicle to the supermarket on both occasions.

She was unlicensed at the time, so police had the evidence they needed to charge her with two counts of unlicensed driving.

The incident occurred at the FoodWorks on Bauhinia Dr, Kawungan, on Tuesday.

The 27-year-old driver will face Hervey Bay Magistrates Court.

In a separate incident, a 35-year-old male driver will also face court after he was found over the legal alcohol limit.

The man blew .145 when he was breath-tested on Tuesday.

His vehicle was intercepted on Moonstone Dr, Urangan, about midnight.
