A 52-year-old Dapto man was allegedly caught driving three times over the legal drinking limit.

Police attempted to stop the man on Allen Street, Port Kembla at 3am on Saturday but the man continued and stopped in a nearby car park, allegedly parking diagonally across two parking spaces.

Police allege the man stumbled towards a unit complex and threw his keys under a parked boat trailer.

He was taken to Port Kembla Police Station where he allegedly returned a blood alcohol reading of 0.170.

He will appear in court in August.
