Boozy ride-on esky ride ends with DUI charge

A BOOZY ride on a motorised esky has ended in a drink-driving charge for an unlucky long-weekend Perth partygoer.

The 22-year-old was arrested riding the alcohol-filled esky down the middle of a Sorrento Rd, News.com reported.

It comes three months after a 38-year-old Hervey Bay man was busted driving a motorised esky stocked with beer, cask wine and pre-mixed drinks at Scarness.

A Noosa man was previously fined $500 and disqualified from driving following a similar stunt in 2011.
