The male driver allegedly got out of the vehicle and walked to the side of the road where he proceeded to urinate in full view of the officers, passing motorists and pedestrians.

Police approached the man and directed him to stop, however, he refused and continued to urinate.

The officers determined that the man had been drinking alcohol while driving and were eventually able to conduct a roadside breath test.

After returning a positive result, the man was arrested and taken to Riverstone Police Station where he underwent a second breath analysis which returned an alleged reading of 0.147.

The 49-year-old was issued with a Field Court Attendance Notice for driving with the mid-range prescribed concentration of alcohol (PCA), consuming alcohol whilst driving and and offensive conduct.

He is due to appear at Blacktown Local Court on 26 September.
