Drink driver caught on a golf buggy

A drink driver has been pulled over in Boyne Island driving a golf buggy.

Robert James Speers was intercepted on January 14 on Malpas St where he blew 0.060.

He told police he'd had four drinks that day.

Self-represented, Speers pleaded guilty in Gladstone Magistrates Court on Monday to drink driving.

The 65 year old told the court he couldn't get a lift to his home, which was 1.4km from the golf course.

He was fined $400 and disqualified from driving for one month.
