Hoon admits he "gassed it" before police pulled him over
RHYS Lewis Miller conceded it was time to pull his head in behind the wheel after pleading guilty to making unnecessary noise while driving.
The 23-year-old appeared in Rockhampton Magistrates Court today, after he was pulled over by police on Musgrave St on April 4.
Police prosecutor Senior Constable Shaun Janes said police intercepted Miller's vehicle after hearing loud engine revving and tyres squealing.
Snr Const Janes said Miller told officers he was doing burnouts and had "gassed it" when turning into Musgrave St.
The court heard he had a history of speeding fines and had accumulated several demerit points.
A driver's licence can be suspended for three months if 12, but not more than 15, demerit points are accumulated.
Magistrate Jeffrey Clarke told Miller it "might be time to act your age".
The court heard Miller worked as a boilermaker in Yeppoon, but lived in Blackwater.
When asked by Mr Clarke what he would do about his driving, Miller replied "pull my head in".
Mr Clarke said he needed to consider the potential for tragedy when driving and it was likely Miller would lose his licence once points were considered.
Miller was fined $375, with a traffic conviction recorded.
