Man charged with multiple offences
POLICE have charged a 22-year-old man with dangerous operation of a motor vehicle whilst adversely affected, driving under the influence of liquor, bribery and obstructing police after an incident in Goodna overnight.
Around 12.30am police were conducting mobile patrols on Alice Street when they allegedly observed a vehicle travelling on the incorrect side of the road.
