Van Asch charged with drink-driving


Bungy co-founder Henry van Asch will appear on a drink-driving charge in the Queenstown District Court on Monday.

Van Asch, 52, of Dalefield, was charged after being stopped by police in Robins Rd on November 13 last year.

An evidential blood test gave a result of 160mg – more than three times the legal limit.

As well as being the co-founder of AJ Hackett Bungy, van Asch is the owner of van Asch Wines.
