Maxamillian Tippett, 24, allegedly blew 0.122 when he was pulled over by police in Ludmilla at 1.50am on January 15. The son of well-known Darwin lawyer Jon Tippett QC was jailed for eight months with a suspended sentence of 22 months in July 2009 for two violent un provoked unrelated attacks on Mitchell St in 2008. He was released on the condition that he be supervised for two years and not drink alcohol or consume illicit drugs for that time. But he returned a positive blood alcohol reading to Corrections staff in September 2010 and returned to court the following month. Court documents seen by the NT News say he told Corrections staff he had drunk about 10 beers at the Bagot Community and then fell asleep before being tested. In the NT Supreme Court hearing, Chief Justice Trevor Riley said it was not a serious breach and did not warrant imprisonment. I trust it will not happen again, he said. You cannot expect to come back to this court again and not be punished if you breach the orders of the court. Justice Riley ordered Mr Tippetts period of suspension and conditions be extended for six months, valid until the end of this year. He is expected to face court again this month. Upgrade boon for anglers Dennis Smart fishes off the newly opened jetty near Palmerstons Elizabeth River Bridge Picture: JUSTIN SANSON A NEW boat ramp, floating pontoon and fishing jetty opened near Palmerston yesterday The facility, which incorporates the existing boat ramp on the Elizabeth River next to Channel Island Rd south of Palmerston, has a fish cleaning area, a disability access ramp for boats, a toilet block and a secure and lit car and trailer parking area. The opening coincided with the opening of the barramundi season on the lower reaches of the Mary River at Shady Camp and Daly River. Fisheries Minister Kon Vatskalis said the makeover was an election promise with input from the Palmerston Game Fishing Club, Amateur Fishermens Association of the Northern Territory, and the Palmerston City Council. Stranded passengers cleared ABOUT 1600 stranded passengers waiting to leave Bali were cleared yesterday after volcanic ash in the region caused flights to be cancelled and delayed. Airlines resumed flights in and out of Denpasar after being told ash from an Indonesian volcano no longer posed a threat to aircraft. The eruption of 2329m-high Tengger Caldera, in east Java, forced the cancellation of flights for two days straight, stranding passengers bound to and from Bali. RSL tips in for flood appeal DARWIN RSL has tippedmore than $20,000 into the fundraising bucket for the Queensland floods.

The RSLwill continue to have blue buckets around the club for the next couple of weeks for punters to throw their spare change into.
