Stingers stop car on highway
POLICE were forced to deploy road spikes to stop a car on Bunya Hwy north of Crawford at the weekend.
Kingaroy Police Senior Sergeant Duane Frank said the road spikes, or stingers, disabled all four wheels on a car driven by an alleged 17-year-old drink driver.
The Proston youth was apprehended in the early hours of Sunday morning with an alleged blood alcohol level of 0.166%.
The youth allegedly held a learner's permit, but no licence.
Police will allege the vehicle was reported stolen in Proston.
Snr Sgt Duane Frank said the youth was arrested and charged with offences including unlawful operation of a vehicle, dangerous operation of a vehicle, evading police and drink driving and was due to appear in Kingaroy court later this month.
