On September 14, 2021 officers with Patrol Services charged 35-year-old Nicholas Huyghe with impaired driving – alcohol and/or drugs.
Around 11:50 a.m. while on patrol in the area of Second Line West and Leigh’s Bay Road, the accused was operating a vehicle, stopped in the middle of the roadway and flagged down police to stop. Officers stopped and spoke with the accused who indicated his vehicle was stuck.
Officers did not see any reason why the vehicle would be stuck and upon further investigation officers developed grounds to believe his ability to operate a motor vehicle was impaired by drugs.
He was arrested and later completed a Drug Recognition Evaluation in which he performed poorly. He is charged with impaired driving – alcohol and/or drugs. He was released on an appearance notice and is scheduled to appear in court on November 8, 2021.
