Police catch man drink-driving the morning after a big night

A BIG night out has ended with police the next morning for a 54-year-old Fraser Coast man who was caught drink-driving about 7.30am.

Police stopped the driver on Maryborough-Hervey Bay Rd on Saturday morning and he was found to have a BAC of 0.110.

A police spokesman said the incident should serve as a reminder to people who have been out drinking the night before that it takes time for alcohol to leave your system.
