You smoke speed, you become a bomb, driver told

SWEATING profusely and with eyes bloodshot, Anthony Leon Djeldic raised suspicions when pulled over at 7.30am on November 4.

Police uncovered a large glass pipe and a black set of scales in the vehicle Djeldic was driving.

And after a drug test, amphetamines were found in the defendant's system, consistent with claims he had "smoked speed" the night before.

Djeldic faced Gladstone Magistrates Court this week, pleading guilty to three charges including possessing utensils and driving under the influence.

Magistrate Brian Kucks said he was lucky not to have killed someone through his actions.

"You want to put this stupid stuff in your veins, you become a bomb," he said.

"Don't even think about driving for the next 10 months."

Djeldic was ordered to pay a $1400 fine and was disqualified from driving for 10 months.
