NORTH Albury man Kai Anthony Wooten is a slow learner.
Twice since he lost his driver’s licence in July for a drink-driving, he has been caught driving.
Now he will be sentenced on October 29 after yesterday pleading guilty in Albury Local Court to middle-range drink-driving and two counts of driving when suspended.
His matters have been adjourned for the preparation of a pre-sentence report.
Wooten, 32, of Kokoda Street, drove along Union Road about 10.35pm on July 13 and skidded through the intersection at Racecourse Road where the front of his car hit a concrete kerb and wire fence.
He got out of his vehicle and began to walk away as witnesses contacted police.
One witness knew Wooten, told police who he was and provided a description of what he was wearing.
Soon after, police found Wooten on private property after receiving a complaint. They saw him staggering, fall over twice and get up both times.
He was arrested and taken to the police station where a breath analysis gave a reading of 0.148.
His licence was immediately suspended due to the level of his reading.
Just seven days later, Wooten was caught driving again.
And he was out of luck on September 2 when an off-duty police officer saw him driving in Waugh Road about 3pm.
The officer told colleagues who went looking for Wooten after being given a description of his car.
They saw him turn from Urana Road into Sanders Street before he stopped in a supermarket car park.
Police stopped beside him as he was getting out of the car.
When asked for his licence, he claimed it was at home.
He later claimed he did not know his licence had been suspended.
