Drunken Road Rage

Posted by on 09/06/2014


A 50 year old Whakamaramara man was arrested yesterday afternoon for purposely smashing his vehicle into four parked cars.

It’s alleged the man was ‘under the influence’ when he took exception to the cars in his way.

Four Police units turned out after reports of a man in a utility doing ‘burn outs’ were called in. They found the man kicking his car on the corner of Ross and Whakamaramara Road and took him into custody.

He blew 880mcg of alcohol per litre of breath when tested, twice the adult limit, and will appear in the Tauranga Court facing a number of charges this Thursday.
