Police have charged a 27-year-old Napier man after allegedly having had more than three times over the legal blood alcohol limit inside his system.
The man will appear in Hastings District Court on Wednesday for charges of driving recklessly, driving with excess blood alcohol and failing to stop for authorities.
After fleeing from Police, the man driving his vehicle ended up becoming lodged in a high stack of crates 10 meters above ground at a Hastings orchard on Kenilworth Road, Mayfair, at around 12:30 am on April 4.
The Court's documents show Police alleging that the man had 168 milligrams of alcohol per 100 millilitres of blood within his body. It is over the legal limit of 50 milligrams.
