A MAN who tried to plead guilty to drink-driving was turned away from court yesterday morning because he was allegedly too drunk.
Daryl John Pollock appeared in Hervey Bay Magistrates Court to plead guilty to his drink-driving and unlicensed driving charges.
Police prosecutor Senior Constable Jeanette Grigoris immediately told the court she had concerns about Pollock's ability to enter a plea.
Snr Const Grigoris believed the man was intoxicated as he smelled strongly of liquor and his speech was slurred.
Magistrate Graham Hillan agreed and adjourned the matter until May 16.
