Niagara Regional Police say that last night, they arrested two drivers for impaired driving.
The first arrest was made in the town of Grimsby after an officer observed a pickup truck being driven erratically. The officer initiated a traffic stop with the same truck, and after a brief investigation the male driver was placed under arrest for impaired driving by alcohol. With the assistance of the Niagara Regional Police Service Traffic Enforcement Unit the male provided a sample of his breath for analysis and was found to have four times the legal limit of alcohol in his blood.
The second arrest was made in the town of Beamsville after a citizen had called the police about a vehicle following their vehicle throughout the town. Police located the vehicle and performed a traffic stop with it. After a brief investigation the male driver was placed under arrest for operating a motor vehicle while his ability to do so was impaired by drug. The male was transported to the Niagara Regional Police Service Headquarters where he was assessed by a Drug Recognition Expert officer and was found to be impaired by drug.
Both drivers were released from police custody with future court dates, their driver’s licences were suspended for 90 days, and their vehicles were impounded for 7 days.
The Niagara Regional Police Service remains committed to reducing Impaired Driving Offences.
