Half an hour later a 38-year-old man was charged with public nuisance on the Dawson Hwy.

On Saturday night, a 32-year-old man was pulled over by police on the Dawson Hwy after driving with a disqualified licence.

In the early hours of Easter Sunday, a 20-year-old man was charged with public nuisance outside the Reef Hotel.

An 18-year-old male drink-driver was intercepted on Daniel Dr in New Auckland at 3.20am on Sunday and recorded a blood-alcohol reading of 0.101.

Two men were also charged with public urination.

The eight men will all appear in Gladstone Magistrates Court at a later date.
