Man faces court after taking fuel to his broken down brother

A YOUNG man caught driving unlicensed in an unregistered car told the court he was only driving to take fuel to his brother who had broken down on the side of the road in Nanango.

Jade Hugh Cherry pleaded guilty in Nanango Magistrates Court last Thursday to driving unlicensed, driving an unregistered car, and contravening a requirement to report to the police station with his identifying particulars.

Cherry told the court he felt obliged to drive when his brother broke down on D'Aguilar Hwy.

"The only reason I did drive was because my brother rang me and said he ran out of fuel on the side of the highway," he said.

Cherry was disqualified from holding or obtaining a license for two months and was fined $660.
