Impaired Driving arrest
A concerned motorist contacted police after she observed a vehicle driving erratically in the city’s north end which resulted in a traffic stop and charges of impaired driving.
The caller observed a silver Honda making several driving infractions and operating at various speeds before contacting police with the location and licence number of the vehicle. Police in the area were able to catch up with the Honda near the intersection on Stewart Blvd at Jefferson Drive. Upon speaking with the driver, officers detected an odour of alcohol on the driver’s breath and conveyed him to police headquarters for breath tests.
After providing breath samples, the 59 year old Addison area man was charged with impaired driving and driving with over 80 milligrams of alcohol in 100 millilitres of blood. He was released and given a future court date.
