Officers pulled the 41-year-old over around 11.45 am, after they noticed the driver reportedly tailgating them in an unregistered vehicle – suspecting she was affected by alcohol.

After failing a roadside breath test, the driver was conveyed to the Werribee Police Station where she allegedly returned a positive breath test reading of 0.204.

She will face the Werribee Magistrates Court on charges of drink driving, driving whilst having an illicit drug in her system and multiple other driving offences.
