A FAST food worker was drunk behind the wheel when he was caught driving the wrong way up Bay Street with four girls in his car.

Colin James Bevan was fined a total of $1296 and disqualified from driving for two years at Tweed Heads Local Court on Monday.

The 27-year-old pleaded guilty to mid-range drink-driving and not complying with his licence. It was his second drink-driving conviction in five years.

Bevan's Mazda was spotted driving the wrong way on Bay Street at 1.45am on February 13.

Bevan had a blood alcohol concentration of .095 per cent. The car was a manual and he was only licensed for an automatic.
