Driver allegedly six times limit at Williamtown

A woman will face court after allegedly being caught driving more than six times over the legal blood-alcohol limit in the Hunter.

Police were patrolling Nelson Bay Road at Williamtown about 8.30pm on Saturday after receiving information from the public about the manner of driving of a person behind the wheel of a black Audi.

Police stopped the vehicle after they allegedly witnessed the car swerve and hit the gutter.

Officers from Port Stephens-Hunter Police District spoke to the driver, a 31-year-old woman.

She underwent a roadside breath test, which returned a positive result.

The woman was arrested and taken to Raymond Terrace Police Station, where she underwent a breath analysis and allegedly returned a reading of 0.337, more than six and a half times the legal limit.

She was issued a Future Court Attendance Notice for high range drink driving.

The woman, whose licence was also suspended, will face Raymond Terrace Local Court on September 6.
