Impaired Driving Arrest

2 Drivers, 1 Vehicle Arrested for Impaired Driving

A man and woman were both arrested for impaired driving Monday night after taking turns driving downtown.

Just after 10 p.m. police were called about a possible impaired driver sitting in a car near Wyndham Street North and Macdonell Street. While on the phone, the witness reported the male driver and his female passenger had switched seats and driven away.

The vehicle returned a short time later and parked in the area. Officers located both parties standing outside and noted signs of impairment on both. Both were arrested and transported to the police station, where breath tests confirmed both had more than the legal amount of alcohol in their system.


A 48-year-old Guelph man and 47-year-old Erin woman are each charged with impaired driving. Their driver’s licences were suspended for 90 days and the vehicle, registered to the woman, was impounded for seven days. Both will appear in court March 22.

The Guelph Police Service would like to encourage the public to always consume alcohol and cannabis responsibly. Please don’t drive if you are going to consume alcohol or cannabis, and please ensure that you plan ahead so that you have a safe ride home. Anyone who spots a suspected impaired driver is asked to immediately call 911.
