A MAN has been fined $2200 and had his licence disqualified after pleading guilty to possession of dangerous drugs, failing to stop at a designated stop sign, driving an unregistered vehicle and driving under the influence.
Brett Vock pleaded guilty to all charges when he appeared in Gladstone Magistrates Court last week.
Mr Vock was driving a white dual-cab ute on November 28 when he failed to stop at a stop sign on Kirkwood Rd.
He then proceeded to veer erratically across lanes.
When stopped by police, a clear bag containing 2.7 grams of methamphetamine was found in Vock's possession.
The defendant told the court the incident had been the "kick in the pants he had needed to successfully give up drugs".
Magistrate Russell Warfield accepted the defendant's early plea.
Mr Warfield implored Vock to realise the stupidity of his actions in putting his own life and that of others at risk.
No criminal conviction was recorded.
