A learner driver has been nabbed drink-driving after being caught travelling the wrong way down a one-way city street.
Police saw the Avondale Heights man drive a Mazda 3 the wrong way down Little Bourke Street from Russell Street about 5.15am Saturday morning.
Leading Senior Constable Kendra Jackson said that when police pulled over the 28-year-old after a three-point turn on the narrow street, he returned a positive breath test.
He was later breath tested at Melbourne West Police Station, and returned a reading of .101 per cent.
The man was slapped with a $661 ticket for exceeding the prescribed concentration of alcohol and his licence was cancelled for 10 months.
He is likely to receive further fines for other offences at a later date.
