An unlicensed driver gave police his twin brother’s details after being pulled over by officers in Denmark. Lindsay Roy Gunn, 30, gave police the false details after he was stopped in his Nissan Patrol ute on South Coast Highway on April 26, prosecuting Sgt Alan Dean told the Albany Magistrate’s Court last Thursday. Sgt Dean told the court Gunn had panicked and given officers his twin brother’s name. During the stop, captured on a police body camera, officers uncovered an illegal expandable metal baton. Gunn was also unable to “effectively” comply with an oral drug swipe. The court was told Gunn co-operated with police throughout the stop and made substantial efforts to provide a sample for the drug test, but could not produce enough saliva. Gunn’s defence counsel told the court he had been driving to pick up a tool trailer for his building business. Magistrate Raelene Johnston told Gunn providing police with false details was a “stupid thing to do” and could lead to “dire consequences”. The 30-year-old had his licence suspended for nine months and was fined $1800 after pleading guilty to possessing a prohibited weapon, having no authority to drive, failing to comply with police requirements, and providing false details.
