Refusal to Provide Breath Sample

Police DUI

On September 13th, 2017 officers with the Patrol Services Division of the Sault Ste. Marie Police Service arrested 33 year old Ashley Gapp of Pine Street for an impaired driving related offence.

It is alleged that just before 9:30 p.m. the accused was operating a motor vehicle on Wallace Terrace in Sault Ste. Marie.  At the time, the accused was travelling Westbound in the Eastbound lane and collided with a vehicle that was travelling Westbound in that lane.

Officers arrived and developed grounds to believe that the accused was under the influence of alcohol.  As a result, officers made a demand for the accused to provide a sample of her breath into an approved screening device.  The accused refused to provide a sample of her breath into the device and was subsequently charged with one count of refusing to provide a breath sample.  She will appear in court on October 17th, 2017.
