Man charged with high range drink driving

A driver who allegedly fell asleep after his vehicle mounted the kerb at Riverstone has returned a breath test more than five times the legal limit.

Police will allege the vehicle mounted the kerb on Garfield Street at Riverstone about 12.45pm yesterday (July 17).

"His vehicle came to a stop where he then fell asleep," police said in a statement.

Concerned members of the public immediately contacted police, who arrived at the scene soon afterwards.

"As the Riverstone Highway Patrol reached the scene, the man awoke and drove his vehicle off the footpath before being stopped by the officers," police stated.

"A roadside breath test returned a positive reading. He was then arrested and taken to Riverstone police station where a breath analysis returned a reading of 0.261."

The man's licence was suspended and confiscated on the spot, and he was issued with a court attendance notice for High Range PCA.

He is due to appear in Blacktown Local Court on August 12.
