A 21-year-old man was arrested nearby and returned a positive result to a roadside breath test.

He was conveyed to Maroubra Police Station where he underwent a breath analysis.

The man was later charged with police pursuit (Skyes Law), driving with the mid-range prescribed concentration of alcohol, unlicensed – never held, and breach of bail.
