A Broome man has been permanently disqualified from owning a license after he led police on a high speed chase to avoid being caught with six times the legal alcohol limit in his system. Alan Paul Lee appeared in Broome Magistrates Court on August 2, with a string of charges including dangerous driving, failing to stop, driving under the influence of alcohol, no authority to drive and street drinking. The details were heard by police prosecutor Phil Milne, which told of the two separate incidents which led to the permanent disqualification of Lee’s license and a 14 month suspended jail sentence. On November 2 2020 at about 3.44pm, Lee drove a Toyota Land Cruiser along Frederick Street when police stopped him for a random breath test and found he had a blood alcohol content of 0.325g, which warranted an immediate disqualification of his license. Lee was sighted again on December 26 driving along Reid Road at about 9.20am, when police signalled for him to stop he instead accelerated away, reaching speeds in excess of 110km per hour. After an approximately 30 second high speed chase, Lee was caught after he was forced to stop for a pedestrian on Clementson Street and was found to have a blood alcohol content of 0.301g, as well as several open bottles of alcohol in his vehicle. Magistrate Stephen Sharratt said Lee had “done it too many times before,” while the court heard of his previous driving offences in both 2001 and 2004. Lee will reside at his mother’s home in Broome, where he was instructed to stay out of trouble to avoid the 14 month suspended jail sentence imposed by Magistrate Sharratt. The court heard Lee would also continue to complete programs with the Broome Regional Aboriginal Medical Service and Milliya Rumurra.
