A Warrnambool man has been resentenced on drug trafficking charges after he breached a corrections order by driving a stolen car while drunk.
Matty McNeil, 22, of Aitkins Road, pleaded guilty in Warrnambool Magistrates Court on Monday to breaching a community corrections order.
He was placed on the 12-month corrections order in June last year after being convicted of selling ecstasy, ice and cannabis.
He then breached that order in December by driving a stolen car to the McDonald's drive-thru while drunk and with a disqualified licence.

Due to the corrections order breach, he returned to court on Monday where he was resentenced for the original drug offences.
Magistrate Peter Mellas said he would give McNeil one more chance with corrections and placed the man back on an order, which includes being under supervision.
"You're still a young man, there's still a lot of work you need to do so you don't get yourself back in this situation," he said.
The man was urged to persevere with drug treatment and rehabilitation once back in the community.
