The son of NSW Police Commissioner Mick Fuller has been charged with drink driving while unlicensed after failing a breath test on the weekend.
Jacob Fuller allegedly blew .031 — which is an offence because of the zero alcohol limit on P-plate drivers.
The 20-year-old stopped short of a roadside breath testing station on the Princes Highway at Waterfall just before 3am on Sunday, police allege.
“After returning a positive roadside reading, the driver was subject to a breath analysis, which allegedly returned a reading of 0.031,” police said in a statement released today.
The reading is the equivalent to having one beer.
When officers checked the young man’s provisional licence they discovered it had a demerit points suspension.
Fuller was arrested and charged with special range drink driving and drive on road while licence suspended.
He is due to appear at Sutherland Local Court on October 17.
His father, who is currently in Tel Aviv at a police conference, was informed of his son’s arrest and was unavailable for comment.
Fuller was one of 260 drivers caught drink driving during Operation Nabbed, a major weekend road safety blitz across Sydney.
In a Monday press release NSW Police published the results of more than 75,000 breath tests:
Drink driving charges laid — 260
Traffic charges — 119
Traffic Infringement Notices Issued — 1928
