A senior police detective caught high-range drink driving had not held a driver’s licence for 25 years, a court has heard.
Detective Sergeant Andrew John Clarke, 46, was fined $2000 and disqualified from driving for nine months.
He was off-duty when he was pulled over for a random breath test on Hawkesbury Valley Way at Windsor about 9.55pm on July 10.
A breath analysis returned a reading of .17.
The court heard Sergeant Clarke immediately told the police officer he did not have a valid driver’s licence and that the licence he had in his wallet was not in his real name but was a fake identity.
