Impaired Driving Arrest

Impaired Driver with Daughter in Vehicle Collision

Two men were arrested for impaired driving over the weekend, including a Guelph man who had his teenage daughter in the car when they were involved in a minor collision.

Approximately 3:40 p.m. Friday police were called to a collision on Eramosa Road near Orchard Crescent. Investigation revealed a car was slowing behind a vehicle which was turning when it was hit from behind. No injuries were reported.

Officers spoke to one of the drivers and immediately detected a strong odour of alcohol on his breath. His 15-year-old daughter was also in the car. He was arrested and transported to the police station, where testing showed he had more than the legal amount of alcohol in his system. A 46-year-old Guelph man is charged with impaired driving.


Shortly before 5 a.m. Sunday, a resident of Paisley Road called to report a male passed out in a running vehicle in the parking lot. Officers arrived and observed a male slumped forward in the driver’s seat with his foot on the brake. When the male was wakened he was observed to have slurred speech and officers could see open alcohol containers inside the vehicle.

Testing at the police station confirmed he had more than the legal amount of alcohol in his system. A 38-year-old Ariss man is charged with impaired driving.


Both men had their driver’s licences suspended for 90 days and their vehicles impounded for seven days. They were released with upcoming court dates.

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.
