Home brew blows it for driver

A POTENT home brew was Glenn Moore-Carter's downfall.

The Hervey Bay photographer had attended a funeral on September 25 and went on to the wake, where home brew was being drunk.

Moore-Carter stopped drinking three to four hours before getting in the driver's seat but it was not enough.

He was pulled over for a roadside breath test and blew .06. Police drove him back to the wake.

Moore-Carter pleaded guilty in the Hervey Bay Magistrates Court to drink-driving.

The court heard his only other drink-driving conviction on record was from 1989.

He said he thought he would be under the legal limit.

“There is no way you can estimate your concentration,” Magistrate Graeme Tatnell said.

“And you could never guess home brew - it depends on how much sugar goes into it.”

Moore-Carter was fined $300 and disqualified from driving for one month.
