A man encouraging others not to drink and drive but he himself drank 50 cans of beer before getting behind the wheel.
Herald Sun reported that Ken Renshaw, 52, from Rutherglen, father of three, in the country's southeast, acknowledges he was a "bloody idiot" for driving home after consuming more than four dozen beers in less than 20 hours on a fishing trip.
"I was shattered," he said. "I was the idiot, and I'll admit it. It shouldn't have happened."
The drinking spree started about 10am on December 5 last year and culminated to the early hours of the next day. He drank about two cans of beer an hour. He took a quick shot in the eye, and right after he drove nearly 200 km home to the small town of Rutherglen. When he was getting near home, a tire came off his trailer, triggering a bushfire.
