A 41-year-old Broome man has been handed a lifetime disqualification from driving after he was found with a blood-alcohol reading six times the legal limit. Wayne Peters was drinking with friends on the evening of May 27 when he left to buy cigarettes at a local store. Peters admitted he was aware that he was intoxicated at the time of getting behind the wheel. Peters was found to have a blood-alcohol reading of 0.299 while also driving with a suspended license as a result of two previous drink-driving offences. He was later charged with one count of driving a motor vehicle under the influence of alcohol and one count of driving with a suspended license. He pleaded guilty to all charges. Appearing before Broome Magistrates Court on Monday morning, Peters was handed a seven-month suspended prison sentence, a $400 fine and a lifetime suspension from driving.
