A Darwin tour guide is due to face court next month after she allegedly drove a tour group around while she was drunk.

According to a report by the ABC, Northern Territory Police said that a group of eight tourists were returning from a trip on Sunday when their driver began acting in an aggressive manner.

Officers pulled the bus over on a main road in Darwin, where the woman blew 0.232 – more than four times the legal limit.

“As the passengers fled to the safety of their hotel rooms, the 45-year-old female driver was subject to a breath test,” said a police statement.

“One passenger had genuine fears for her safety because of the driver’s aggressiveness and apparent intoxication,” the statement said.

The tour guide will appear in court next month.
