Cyclist refused a drink, had a dance, then nabbed at 0.189%

A GLENMORE Hotel patron who was refused alcohol so "had a bit of a dance" and rode home on a bicycle pleaded guilty in Rockhampton Magistrates Court to drink-driving on January 6.

Police witnessed Rodney Darren Holmes cycling through a car park, almost colliding with a parked car at 7.30pm on December 12.

Police prosecutor Danita Clarke said Holmes told police he drank three beers between 4pm and the time of being caught.

Holmes recorded a blood-alcohol concentration of 0.189%.

"I was drinking at home and went to the hotel but they wouldn't serve me because I was intoxicated," Holmes told the court.

"So I had a water and a bit of a dance.

"I totally regret it."

Magistrate Cameron Press fined Holmes $650.
