A drunk driver was arrested at a Warrnambool pub after crashing his car into a fence and then continuing to the venue on foot.
Alex Keane, 25, of Slatterys Road, Woolsthorpe, pleaded guilty in Warrnambool Magistrates Court to driving-related offences.
Magistrate Jon Klestadt said having a driver's licence was important, especially in regional Victoria where public transport was "at best, inadequate".
He said Keane had a very poor driving history and "would not be driving for a long time".
Keane was fined $3300 and his licence was disqualified for 15 months.
On June 26, Keane was caught driving with a suspended licence on Warrnambool-Caramut Road at 10.40am.
He told police he didn't know his licence was suspended.
Then on July 13 he was intercepted about 1.30pm after he was clocked at 111km/h on Woolsthorpe's Warrnambool-Heywood Road - a signed 100km/h zone.
He again told police he wasn't aware of the suspension, despite being pulled over a month earlier.
Then on October 7, Keane was drinking at a property in Grassmere. He decided to drive to Warrnambool's Seanchai Irish Pub about 10.30pm.
He turned into a dirt track at Brierly Recreation Reserve and lost control of the vehicle before hitting a fence and smashing the front windscreen of his vehicle.
The car became bogged. Keane left the scene and walked to the pub.
Police attended the venue about 1am and approached Keane who said "you got me".
He was arrested and conveyed to the Warrnambool police station, where he blew .063.
