A Dubbo man busted in the back seat of a car with ice and a taser down his trousers must remain drug free for his relationship to last, a court has heard.
Benjamin John Batten, 36, was in the back seat of a car, when it was pulled over by police about 12.20am on May 6 this year.
When police approached the vehicle they saw Batten in the back seat, with females in the driver's and front passenger seats.
Police spoke to the three when they noticed Batten's hands shaking.
In court documents, police said they saw Batten repeatedly move his hands in and out of his pockets, and a blade fall from one.
Police searched the three and found something "hard and unnatural" down one of the females' pants. She informed police it was drugs but said she wasn't the owner.
Officers observed the small tic-tac container which had a clear resealable bag inside with a crystal substance.
Batten told the officers "they're mine" and said he had "panicked" when police pulled them over so he gave it to her.
Police searched Batten and located a taser near his ankle down in his trousers.
Batten made full admissions and said he had purchased the taser off Wish for $19 and that the 0.77 grams of drugs was ice he used for "personal use".
In Dubbo Local Court, Batten pleaded guilty to possessing a prohibited weapon and possessing a prohibited drug.
Defence lawyer Bill Dickens said Batten had instructed him he had a long-term drug problem, however had been "drug free" since his arrest on May 6.
Mr Dickens told the court Batten was supported in court by his partner, and it was their intention to relocate to Scone.
"She's made it quite clear she's only willing to support him and maintain the relationship if he remains drug free," he said.
Magistrate Gary Wilson convicted and fined Batten $600.
