A JUVENILE has been arrested for drink driving in Ballina.

Police stopped the car on Moon Street, Senior Constable David Henderson said.

The juvenile failed a breath test and was placed under arrest.

The juvenile then became argumentative with police and had to be physically assisted into a police truck, snr const Henderson said.

At Ballina Police Station she recorded a breath analysis that placed her in the mid range.
