While on routine patrol, City Police officers observed a vehicle proceed through a red light at the intersection of Wellington and Bruce Street in the early evening of April 28th.
A vehicle stop was conducted and it was determined the driver had been drinking. A roadside test was performed which produced a fail reading. The male was then transported to the Police station where further Intoxilyzer tests were done which produced readings at more than 2 times the allowable limit.
As a result, 66 year old David Mabon of Riverview Rd. was charged with Care and Control of a motor vehicle with more than 80 mgs. of alcohol per 100 milliliters of blood. He will be appearing in Provincial Court on May 30th.
City Police responded to a vehicle in the ditch in the Panoramic Drive area late last night. Upon their arrival they were able to determine that 30 year old Scott Keating of Northland Rd. was the driver of the vehicle and had in fact driven his vehicle into the ditch.
At that point the accused was arrested for Impaired Operation, transported to the station where he registered readings of more than twice the legal limit on the Intoxilyzer and was also charged with over 80. He will be appearing in Provincial Court on May 30th.
