A driver in Pakenham went to pick up fish and chips and came home with a court date instead.

The male driver tested positive to illicit drugs in his system after police intercepted his vehicle.

Highway Patrol were notified about the vehicle being parked illegally in a disabled zone.

Upon inspection, the man drove away, not getting far before being intercepted by officers.
