He’s been granted bail and will face Newcastle Local Court in June.

Meanwhile, a Nelson Bay man has had his licence suspended after he returned a breath test reading more than four times the legal limit.

The 33-year-old was stopped on the Pacific Highway at Gordon in Sydney’s north at around 2:20 on Monday morning, where he returned an alleged reading of 0.228.

He’ll face Hornsby Local Court at a later date, charged with high range drink driving.
