Man in Torquay Rd crash drops bail application

WEARING the Maryborough Correctional Centre prisoner's uniform, Gerald Francis Brady sat in the dock of Hervey Bay courtroom one.

It was a stark contrast to the casual attire of board shorts and no shoes he sported on Wednesday as he faced serious charges of dangerous driving while adversely affected by an intoxicating substance.

The charges stem from a crash which happened on Torquay Rd on Monday night.

The 33-year-old's lawyer, John Milburn, made an application for bail on Wednesday but Magistrate Graeme Tatnell adjourned the matter to yesterday.

On Wednesday Mr Milburn argued his client should receive bail but police prosecutor Senior Constable Jeanette Grigoris opposed due to the serious nature of the charges.

After further charges of possessing a knife and wilful damage against police property were added to Brady, Mr Milburn elected not to continue with the application for bail.

Brady was remanded in custody and will appear in the Hervey Bay Magistrates Court again on May 21.
