A woman will face court after being caught driving seven times over the legal alcohol limit in the Lake Macquarie area.

About 11.15am on Tuesday 19 March, officers attached to Lake Macquarie Police District were patrolling the Pacific Highway, Gateshead.

After witnessing the offender’s erratic driving, they proceeded to stop the sedan.

When the driver allegedly returned a positive roadside breath test, she was placed under arrest and taken to Belmont Police Station.

There she underwent another analysis, which returned a reading of 0.356.

The 46-year-old woman was issued a court attendance notice for drive with high-range PCA and her license was suspended immediately.

She’ll appear before Belmont Local Court on Wednesday 27 March.
