Police allegedly saw a Holden Commodore swerving between lanes on Minjungbal Dr, Tweed Heads South, about 11.50pm on Saturday.

Police said they attempted to pull the driver over for a breath test, but he continued driving slowly on to the Pacific Hwy.

After eventually coming to a stop, the driver, aged 31, returned a high-range reading of 0.157. He was issued with a court attendance notice.
