The 42-year-old New Beith man will face Beaudesert Magistrates Court on August 25.

It comes after an incident on July 19 when a man allegedly blew .139 after being spotted by officers driving strangely on Johanna Street, near Jimboomba Police Station.

Second test higher

Police say the man blew .114 when pulled over on Waterford-Tamborine Road. That figure, they say, had risen to .153 after the was tested again at Jimboomba Police Station.

Jimboomba's officer in charge, Senior Sergeant Peter Waugh, said the man was stopped when police became suspicious he was under the influence.

"He was pulled over because of the manner of his driving," Senior Sergeant Waugh said.

The 36-year-old from Tamborine will face Beaudesert Magistrates Court on September 1.

Men leapt down embankment in getaway

"They jumped down a 10-foot embankment to get away," Senior Sergeant Waugh said.

Senior Sergeant Waugh said forensic officers were examining a tool the men left behind in making their getaway.
