In Nowra Local Court, Duane Charlie, 30, from Driffield Street, Anula, was also given a two-year good behaviour bond.

He drove straight through the intersection into trees, damaging the front of his car.
Charlie was uninjured and walked to a nearby property to call triple-0.
Police took him to Nowra Police Station where he had a breathalyser reading of .188.
