A COOLANGATTA man will face court next month after doing burnouts in front of Murwillumbah Police at Chinderah on Sunday, September 25.

Murwillumbah Police were patrolling on a road works site on Tweed Valley Way, Chinderah, when they spotted a 30-year-old Coolangatta man driving a Toyota Hilux at about 3.30am on Sunday, September 25.

The man was driving the vehicle in a dangerous manner, doing burnouts and had created a dust cloud.

Police stopped the vehicle and found the man to be affected by alcohol. The man was placed under arrest and taken back to Murwillumbah Police Station.

He underwent a breath analysis, which produced a reading of 0.195, which is a high range PCA (drink driving) offence.

The man had his licence suspended, and was issued a Court Attendance Notice to appear at Murwillumbah Local Court on Tuesday, October 25.
