A MOTORBIKE rider wearing a purple Ellesse leisure suit with matching shoes and scarf showed plenty of attitude while speeding along Peninsula Link Frankston on 22 April. Detectives are keen to speak with him over a range of “high range and excessive speed offences”. The rider with a tattoo on the back of his left hand was colour coordinated, too: his bike is believed to be a purple Harley Davidson V-ROD. Anyone with information is urged to call Crime Stoppers 1800 333 000.

4 May. Police called to the club on Tallis Drive arrested the 33-year-old Langwarrin man and took him back to the station for breath testing. He allegedly blew 0.177 per cent and had his car impounded at a cost of $1010. Sergeant Daniel Patton, of Mornington police, said the man then spent four hours in the cells at Rosebud police station. He was to be interviewed in relation to drink-driving, damaging the greens and minor assault-related offences but no charges had been laid, Wednesday.

Breath tests

Daddy blew it

SOMERVILLE Highway patrol’s Leading Senior Constable Greg Wolfe has a simple answer when asked why police bother doing breath tests in the middle of the day: “It’s because we keep detecting people like the 56-year-old Mt Martha woman pulled over in Osborne Drive at 1.45pm, Thursday 2 May, who blew 0.233 per cent and the 41-year-old Cranbourne West man detected in Frankston at 11.30am, Tuesday 7 May who blew 0.238 per cent.” “Remember, you can be tested for alcohol and drugs while driving anywhere, anytime.”

A CRANBOURNE West man driving with his eight-year-old son allegedly blew 0.238 per cent when pulled over for a random breath test on FrankstonDandenong Road, Frankston, 11.30am, Tuesday 7 May. The 41-year-old’s licence was immediately suspended for 12 months and his car was impounded for 30 days at a cost of $1040. He is also expected to be charged on summons with drink driving-related matters.

Guest off the list A WEDDING guest evicted from Mornington Golf Club allegedly took out his frustrations by driving erratically through the car park and then damaging the practice green, Saturday

Brothers in hospital A LYNDHURST man handed himself in to police after an incident in Mornington’s Centro car park in which two brothers were allegedly assaulted, early Saturday 4 May. Detective Alex Montgomery, of Somerville CIU, said the man was interviewed by officers at Cranbourne police station but no charges had been

laid, Wednesday. He said the brothers, aged 17 and 20, of Mornington and Mt Martha, were walking through a car park after leaving a nearby hotel when a fight started with a group of men about 3am. They were punched and knocked to the ground in the melee which stopped when bystanders intervened. The other men then fled in an unknown vehicle. The brothers were taken to The Alfred hospital and were said to be recovering last week. Detective Montgomery said the investigation was ongoing. He urged anyone with information to call him on 5978 1300.
