FIFO worker's wild night cost him a job

A FIFO worker who was found by police drunk, half-naked and covered in vomit in a car has "little memory" of the night which will cost him his job.

Aaron Daniel Elliot Anderson, 27, had been out drinking for the night after coming home from the dry camp where he worked when he decided to sleep off the alcohol.

Patrolling officers saw a car with its door open parked on Production Ave, Warana and found Anderson inside with no shirt on as well as vomit on his body, the car and the road.

When they roused him, he repeatedly told police his friend had the car's keys despite them sitting next to him on the passenger seat.

The first time police attempted to breathalyse Anderson the machine shut down and he refused a second test.

He was tested back at the station and produced a blood alcohol concentration of .178 per cent.

Anderson pleaded guilty in Caloundra Magistrates Court to being in charge of a vehicle while under the influence.

Lawyer Sarah Bennett told the court Anderson would lose his job when his licence was suspended and added he had "little memory" of the night.

Magistrate Stephanie Tonkin fined Anderson $800 and disqualified him from driving for nine months with convictions recorded.
