A NSW police statement confirmed that on March 26, the 38-year-old was stopped on a Sydney eastern suburb’s street by highway patrol after allegedly failing to stop at a red light.
Stuart was arrested after returning a positive roadside breath test and taken to Waverley Police Station where a breath analysis allegedly measured 0.083 and his licence was suspended.
The maximum penalty for mid-range drink driving is a $2200 fine, plus a possible nine-month imprisonment with an automatic six-month disqualification from driving.
Stuart was disqualified from driving for nine months in 2012 after being breath-tested by police in southern Sydney. He reportedly admitted drinking five schooners and an unknown quantity of vodka and cranberry at the Bondi surf club beforehand.
