Police prosecutor Lisa Manns said police found out Paulsen had been disqualified from driving for two years and charged him with driving without a licence.

Sergeant Manns said Paulsen told police he was driving because his partner did not know the area well.

Magistrate Chris Callaghan said Paulsen had a history of committing similar offences and sentenced him to three months in prison suspended for two years, and disqualified him from driving for two years.
