POLICE CHARGE LEARNER MOTORCYCLIST IN TAREE

A learner motorcyclist whose licence is disqualified until 20-68 has been charged with two offences.

The 50-year-old man was stopped by police in Taree just before 8:30 last night as part of a random breath-test.

Police say the rider was unable to produce a valid driver’s licence and returned a positive blood alcohol reading.

He will appear in Taree Local Court on July 3.
