According to the "Daily Mail" report, the police broke into an indigenous woman's home to test her for alcohol and arrested her after discovering she was drunk.

Three police officers raided Aileen Roy's home in Katherine, a unit 320 kilometers southeast of Darwin, Northern Territory. They claimed to be conducting a domestic violence order investigation because there was a domestic violence prohibition order regarding her. Part of the prohibition order is that Roy is not allowed to drink while her partner is present.

One of the police officers stated that her partner had epilepsy, which could be dangerous in this case. The police conducted a breath test on Roy, and her alcohol test was positive. Immediately she was taken to the guard room.

The case was rejected after being submitted to the local court, but the police still insisted on appealing to the Supreme Court.

When cross-examined, the police stated that no one had filed a complaint about Roy's possible violation of the domestic violence prohibition order. But they have the right to take potential offenders to the guard room.

Supreme Court Judge Dean Mildreen opposed this statement and rejected the case. He said: "The police do not have the right to enter Roy's home and ask her to take a breath test. When they did this, they were actually an intruder."

Beth Wild, an attorney for the North Australian Indigenous Judiciary, said that this judgment will serve as a reference for future cases: “This judgment shows that the police have no right to break in when they are ignorant of whether the client has violated the domestic violence prohibition order. Check whether residents drink alcohol in residents’ homes."
