Daniel Johns pleads guilty to drink driving

Australian rocker Daniel Johns has pleaded guilty to drink driving after he was caught behind the wheel of his Jaguar sports car with more than twice the legal limit of alcohol in his body.

The former Silverchair frontman was stopped and arrested while driving through Merewether, New South Wales on 28 October (14).


The 35 year old was taken into custody, where he allegedly told police officers he had consumed four large glasses of white wine hours before his arrest.


He pleaded guilty to charges against him in a Newcastle court on Thursday morning (20Nov14) and was ordered to take a Traffic Offenders Program.


He apologized outside the court after the case was adjourned for sentencing until 26 February (15).
