Dancer failed the test

AN iBar dancer was caught drink-driving after quitting her job mid-shift, the Tweed Heads Local Court heard on Monday.

Kelly Arrowsmith told the court she was drinking vodka, lime and sodas during work on April 29, but paced herself so that by the end she would be able to drive home. But the 23-year-old single mother quit the job and drove home early about 10.50pm, which she said put her over the limit.

Police stopped the Nerang woman's Holden Vectra in Boyd Street, only metres from the Tweed Heads “explicit restaurant”.

Arrowsmith failed a roadside breath test and breath analysis confirmed her blood alcohol concentration was .085 per cent.

At court, Arrowsmith was disqualified from holding a driver's licence for six months, put on an 18-month good-behaviour bond and fined $73 in court costs.
