Man's nerves betray him during roadside search

A MAN who was pulled over by police for a roadside drug test had almost escaped detection when officers noticed his hands were shaking.

However, during the interacting, officers noticed Shaxson averting eye contact with police and his hands shaking.

Sen Const Bland said Shaxson's car also smelled of marijuana, prompting police to ask to see the man's backpack, which was inside.

He was released on a $400 recognisance on the condition he attend a drug assessment and education session and remain on good behaviour for four months.
