Jackie Gillies Husband Ben Gillies Charged With Drunk Driving!

Jackie Gillies' Silverchair drummer husband Ben Gillies has been charged with drink-driving and refusing to submit to a breath test last month. According to court records obtained by Newcastle Herald, the Real Housewives of Melbourne husband was detected driving in Hamilton shortly before 1am on January 21.

He was pulled over on Maitland Road in Islington. Gillies stands accused of blowing a blood alcohol reading of 0.144.

He allegedly failed to submit to an officer’s request for a breath test, according to documents. He was charged with mid-range drink-driving (first offence), refusing or failing to submit to a breath test and negligent driving.

Gillies did not appear in Newcastle Local Court on Thursday but was represented by solicitor John Anthony.

The court heard a plea would be entered on the next occasion. Magistrate Ian Cheetham adjourned the matter to March 1.

Meanwhile, Gillies wrote on Facebook on January 28 that he had “taken over” his wife’s social media accounts while she was in the jungle in Africa for the reality series, I'm a Celebrity... Get Me Out of Here!
