Magistrate keeps man in custody overnight to consider bail

A MAN who allegedly crashed into a parked car after he was driving while adversely affected by an intoxicating substance has been remanded in custody.

Gerald Francis Brady faced the Hervey Bay Magistrates Court on Wednesday morning charged with dangerous driving while adversely affected by an intoxicating substance, relating to an alleged incident on Torquay Rd on Monday night.

In separate matters, he was also charged with stealing and unauthorised dealing with shop goods.

Police Prosecutor Senior Constable Jeanette Grigoris opposed bail because she said Brady was likely to commit further offences.

Brady's defence lawyer John Milburn argued Brady would spend a considerable amount of time in custody due to the time it may take to resolve the matters.

Magistrate Graeme Tatnell remanded Brady in custody adjourned the matter until Thursday morning.
