NSW Police Commissioner Mick Fuller’s son has pleaded guilty to drink driving.
Jacob Fuller appeared in Sutherland Local Court on Thursday after he was charged last month.
The 20-year-old was stopped at a Random Breath Test (RBT) at 3am on the Princes Highway at Waterfall, south of Sydney, on September 8.

Fuller, a P-plater, failed the random breath test after blowing 0.031. He was also driving with a suspended licence.
The blood alcohol level for provisional drivers is zero.
In February last year, the Police Commissioner told Alan Jones drink driving was a ‘cultural issue’ and could be a ‘life sentence’.
‘The problem is they’re playing Russian roulette not with their own lives but with our lives,’ he told 2GB.

Police were stationed on the M2, M4, M5, M7, M1 and Princes Highway between 9pm and 4am on Friday September 6 and Saturday September 7 as part of Operation Nabbed.
Over the two nights, more than 75,000 breath tests were conducted and 260 drivers were charged with drink-driving.
In addition, nearly 2,000 traffic infringements were handed out, with 119 drivers facing charges.
Fuller will next appear in Sydney Downing Court on November 7.
