    Stiff sentence for masturbating driver

    A MAN who filmed himself masturbating while driving at 150km/h on the Northern Territory's Stuart Highway has been fined more than $2000 and copped two months jail.

    Brenton Alan Erhardt, 39, appeared in custody before magistrate Sue Oliver yesterday to answer traffic, firearms and drug offences.

    Erhardt pleaded guilty to the six charges, which happened in circumstances Ms Oliver described as "bizarre to say the least".

    The court heard Erhardt had been travelling south along the Stuart Highway, had been smoking cannabis while driving and was filming himself masturbating with a video camera last July.

    The NT News reports police measured his speed at 137 km/h, but the court heard he had been driving at up to 150km/h.

    He had two pipes for smoking cannabis in the car, as well as a loaded and an unlicensed .22 calibre rifle.

    Police also found 4.9kg of marijuana, including two plants on the back seat.

    Ms Oliver said the offence did not reflect Erhardt's age.

    "You're not a particularly young man," she said. "This is the sort of conduct you might expect of a much younger, immature person to engage in.

    "The offences really just speak of a person who doesn't have much regard for rules and regulations overall."

    She sentenced him to 28 days in prison for the driving dangerously charge, which she said was serious.

    "It's right up there at the upper end of dangerous driving," she said. "It causes you some embarrassment to have this aired in a public forum.

    "Perhaps there's something to be learned from that."

    Erhardt was also sentenced to another 28-day prison term for driving while disqualified, to be served cumulatively to the dangerous driving sentence.

    Both sentences were to be served concurrently with another prison sentence he is serving.

    He was fined a total of $2160 for the drugs and firearms offences.

    Erhardt appeared in the Northern Territory Supreme Court last month on further drug charges from the same day.

    He was sentenced to three years behind bars.

    I'm just glad you've finally learned your lesson, young man. I don't know how many times I've told you.
