A MONTO man has been charged with public nuisance after an incident at Foodworks last month.

Monto police allege at about 4.30pm on Sunday, October 21, the 30-year-old was driving a white Ford Territory on Rutherford St.

According to authorities, witnesses reported the man's white Ford Territory had been travelling at high speeds and driving in a dangerous manner.

Police allege residents said the vehicle had lost traction with the road on a number of occasions, and almost came unstuck when the driver lost control at two intersections.

Police intercepted the vehicle soon after and issued the man with a notice to appear on November 21 for driving without due care and attention.
