Australian pop star Daniel Merriweather has been banned from the road after crashing his car while drunk and fleeing the scene of the accident.

The singer/songwriter was involved in a collision in Melbourne last December (12) when he lost control of his vehicle and slammed into a parked car.

Police later found the 31 year old was more than three times over Australia's drink driving limit.

He appeared at Melbourne Magistrates' Court on Wednesday (24Apr13) and pleaded guilty to charges of drink driving, careless driving and failing to stop at the scene of an accident.

Magistrate Donna Bakos told the star his behaviour was "very foolish". Merriweather was banned from driving for 14 months and fined $821 (£513), and he will need to complete a driver education course before he is allowed back on the road.
