A Darwin man's wallet is AU$1,400 lighter after police collared him "engaged in a sexual romp with his female passenger" while under the influence, ABC News reports. Builder Bradley Dean Milne, 33, was last month spotted in his ute (pick-up truck) "veering onto the wrong side of a busy Darwin road". A concerned motorist …
"veering onto the wrong side"

Yes, that's a pick-up truck.
Back to the article: did any part of the fine actually relate to the act that we are all interested in, or was it just for the alcohol and lack of seat-belt (sounds like he had a reasonable excuse - the girl on his lap would have stopped him from hitting the steering-wheel) and on that note, did she get in any trouble?

And followed up-
He was driving a Holden Commodore SV6, while not a UTE, does tend to confirm Mark above assertion that "Holden utes are the strict preserve of tattooed fuck-knuckles".
