Wallaceburg driver three times the legal limit


A Wallaceburg man is facing impaired driving charges following an incident in St. Clair Township.

On Saturday August 22, at approximately 2:03 a.m., members of the Lambton County Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) observed a motor vehicle traveling eastbound on Holt Line, St. Clair Township approaching the intersection of 40 Highway.

OPP observed this motor vehicle disobey a posted stop sign and continue driving in an erratic manner.

The motor vehicle was then stopped on Holt Line just east of 40 Highway, St. Clair Township.

OPP made contact with the male driver and shortly determined that the driver was impaired due to the consumption of alcoholic beverages.

The male was arrested and transported to the Lambton OPP – Petrolia Detachment for breath testing which resulted in readings more than three times the legal limit.

Consequently, a 20 year-old Wallaceburg man was charged with:

– Driving While Ability Impaired

– Driving with More than 80 mgs of Alcohol in Blood

The accused will appear in the Sarnia Ontario Court of Justice on Monday September 14, 2015.

The OPP is reminding drivers that any amount of alcohol or other drugs can impair one’s ability to drive.
