A 43-year-old Goodna man who allegedly punched a Dunwich local after bogging his vehicle at Point Lookout will face court next month.
The man has been charged with assault occasioning bodily harm, stealing and mid-range drink driving, having blown more than double the legal limit shortly after the incident.
He is due to appear in Cleveland Magistrates Court on November 4.
Police will allege the man repeatedly punched a 41-year-old Dunwich local who had attempted to help him retrieve his vehicle, which he had bogged at Adder Rock about 4pm on Thursday.
The local called triple 000 after the man was seen trying to move the vehicle while drinking alcohol.
Police allege the man forcibly removed the local's phone and punched him in the face a number of times, causing injury.
He was arrested and returned a blood alcohol reading of 0.144.
Paramedics provided first aid to the victim.
"The good Samaritan did the right thing and called police, unfortunately he was assaulted for his trouble," Sergeant Darren Scanlan said.
"It was lucky he got bogged as he was a crash waiting to happen."
Speed an issue at Point Lookout
FIVE drivers were caught speeding along George Nothling Drive at Point Lookout during a 30 minute period on Sunday afternoon.
Police clocked a top speed of 76km/h in the 40km/h zone.
"The road is well signed so there is no excuse, especially almost twice the limit," Sergeant Scanlan said.
"We have had complaints from residents of George Nothling Drive of drivers speeding on that road as they come on and off the beach.
"We will continue to act on complaints and be highly visible in enforcing the speed limits."
Woman to face court on drink driving
A 38-year-old woman will face court later this month after blowing more than twice the legal limit at Dunwich.
The woman was pulled over by police on Petrie Street about 10.40pm last Friday and returned a blood alcohol reading of 0.118.
She is due to appear in Cleveland Magistrates Court on October 26.
