Over the limit with expired driver's licence

A KOREAN motorist who was driving on an expired licence has faced court for drink-driving.

At Ipswich Magistrates Court, Joonsang Lee, pleaded guilty to driving over the middle alcohol limit and unlicensed driving.

Police prosecutor Sergeant Matt Donnelly said police intercepted the 29-year-old at 4.50am after he was observed "swerving all over the road".

He was breath-tested and recorded a blood alcohol level of .133. The incident took place in East Ipswich on August 30 at 12.50am.

Speaking through a translator, Lee said he regretted driving while alcohol was in his system and if the situation arose again, he would ask someone else to drive.

He was fined $500 and disqualified from holding a licence for four months for both charges.
