Later this year, an Ararat man will appear before the Magistrates' Court after he allegedly recorded a breath test more than six times the legal limit.
An Ararat police spokesperson said officers intercepted the 60-year-old driver on Lowe at 2am.
"Following a positive roadside breath test, the driver came back to the Ararat Police station where he returned a (blood alcohol concentration) reading of 0.312.
"That six times over the legal drink drive limit and enough to kill a horse."
Police impounded the man's vehicle for the mandatory 30 days at the cost of $1115.
