FACING a raft of charges, one man smartly accepted the probation order offered to him in Gladstone Magistrates Court on Tuesday.
Mitchell James Williams faced eight charges, including disqualified driving, unlawful possession of weapons, possession of a knife in public and drug-related charges from February 17 and May 29.
Williams pleaded guilty to all eight charges, as he looked towards reform.
Police prosecutor Sergeant Mick O'Rourke told the court Williams' car had been intercepted for a random breath test in the early hours of February 17, when officers saw Williams with dilated pupils and appearing jittery.
Williams admitted to having taken speed the previous evening.
Officers found Williams had been suspended from driving, then found a 50cm-long cane knife in the rear of the car.
A second knife with a sheath was found in between the centre console and his seat.
Police also found a heavy set of homemade knuckle dusters in the car, as well as two small squares of LSD in a clip seal bag.
They also found an iPhone reported to have been stolen by another man.
On May 29, Williams was again in a vehicle when police intercepted it at about 4.30pm on Philip St.
They found Williams in possession of 2.7g of cannabis, three cannabis seeds, two glass pipes and a water pipe.
Williams told the court he wanted to move on.
"I haven't touched anything for a month now," he said.
Williams told Magistrate Mark Morrow he planned to make a fresh start.
Mr Morrow disqualified Williams from driving for six months for the two driving offences, before ordering him to undergo a 15-month probation order, subject to analysis and conditions.
