After being pulled over, the man, 61, told police he threw the stubby as he didn’t want police to see it.
The man blew under the limit on a preliminary breath test.
The Alboin man is expected to be charged on summons with driving offences and unlawfully deposit litter.
His vehicle has been impounded for 30 days with towing costs of $995.
The intercept was part of Operation Arid, aiming to reduce road trauma and lives lost on our roads over the Labour Day long weekend.
