An Oshawa man is facing several charges after police southeast of Sault Ste. Marie pulled over an intoxicated driver.
Shortly before 9 p.m. on Monday, Nov. 14, officers from the East Algoma detachment of the OPP responded to a traffic complaint from an off-duty officer, who said there was a possible impaired driver headed west on Highway 17.
Approximately 15 minutes later, members from the Thessalon detachment of the OPP located a pick-up truck matching the earlier description on Highway 17 east of Thessalon, a town on the north shore of Lake Huron. After pulling the vehicle over, police determined that the driver had been drinking. The vehicle was towed and impounded for a week.
A 45-year-old Oshawa man is facing charges of driving while impaired, care and control over 80 milligrams and driving while under suspension in connection with this incident.
