A Darwin man's wallet is AU$1,400 lighter after police collared him "engaged in a sexual romp with his female passenger" while under the influence, ABC News reports.
Builder Bradley Dean Milne, 33, was last month spotted in his ute (pick-up truck) "veering onto the wrong side of a busy Darwin road". A concerned motorist witnessed the reason for Milne's distraction when both pulled up at a red light.
Darwin Magistrates Court heard that when the four-wheel Lothario "turned onto another road, his passenger climbed onto his lap and he continued to swerve down the road", indulging in a coupling which "continued for several kilometres".
Milne was subsequently found to be enjoying a blood alcohol level of 90mg per 100ml - over the 50mg limit. He pleaded guilty to five charges, "including driving without a seatbelt and drink driving", for which magistrates slapped him with the fine and a six-month ban.
The perp's lawyer described him as "embarrassed and ashamed". ®
