Scientist caught over the limit on cattle run
ESCAPED cattle caused Leslie Lowe to leave home after a few rums to round up the straying stock.
Lowe, a 51-year-old environmental scientist, pleaded guilty to drink driving on the Ring Rd at Thabeban at 7.45pm on October 11.
His lawyer said he had no intention of going out that night but received a phone call about the cattle escaping.
Unable to contact a colleague, he drove himself, was pulled over and blew 0.068.
Lowe was fined $100 and lost his licence for a month.
