A Griffith motorcyclist allegedly evaded police in a short chase just before blowing three times the legal limit over the weekend.
Police say the 21-year-old rider also had an unhelmeted 14-year-old on the motorcycle with him at the time.
The male rider was driving a black Kawasaki motorcycle on Crossing Street just after midnight on Sunday when a police patrol car noticed his passenger wasn't wearing a helmet.
Officers attempted to pull the rider over however he drove off at "about 60km/h", police say.
Police activated all warning symbols however the rider allegedly continued to drive for another 850 metres before coming to a complete stop on McArthur Street.
Police officers then placed the 21-year-old under arrest and subjected him to a roadside breath test which returned a positive result.
After being taken to Griffith Police Station for further breath analysis, the man allegedly returned a reading of 0.161, more than three times the legal limit.
The man allegedly told police he has consumed "wine and beer" before getting on the bike.
The riders license was immediately suspended and he was charged with high range drink driving and issued an infringement notice for riding with an unhelmeted passenger.
The 14-year-old passenger was taken to his carer and no action was taken against them due to their age.
