His driver’s licence also showed he was subject to a zero blood alcohol restriction.

However, he allegedly returned a reading of .176 on a breath test, as well as a positive drug test for cannabis.

Police impounded his vehicle for 30 days at a cost of $913, and his licence was immediately suspended.

He is expected to be charged on summons with multiple offences.

Achilles Taskforce Sergeant Paul Holtzinger said this incident was the trifecta of risky behaviour while behind the wheel.

“To do a burnout at an intersection on a Sunday afternoon while allegedly both alcohol and drug-affected is extremely dangerous,” he said.

“Your reaction times are severely impacted, and it is so easy to lose control of your car and crash into another vehicle or pedestrian.”
