Stoned man busted driving by torchlight

A NIMBIN man caught driving by torchlight at Goolmangar allegedly told police he had just driven from Nimbin after getting 'stoned'.

At about 3.10am on Saturday police received a call about a vehicle travelling dangerously along Nimbin Rd at Goolmangar.

The witness told police that the vehicle was travelling without headlights or tail lights and the driver was holding a torch out the window to light up the road.

Police said the witness reported seeing the vehicle cross the double lines on numerous occasions.

The vehicle was stopped by police near Jiggi Rd where the driver was breath tested.

When they breath tested the 24 year-old man police found eight cannabis seeds in the car.

Police said the man then admitted that he had smoked cannabis in Nimbin before he drove.

He was arrested and taken to Lismore police station where he was charged with possessing a prohibited drug, negligent driving, not driving on the far left side of the road, driving in the dark with no lights and using a non-compliant vehicle.

The man appeared in Lismore Local Court on Monday where he was granted bail to reappear in January.
