Kitchener Man Arrested for Impaired Driving
Approximately 2:45 a.m., a member of the Guelph Police Service was patrolling on Wellington Street West near Imperial Road South when he observed a vehicle weaving out of its lane. A traffic stop was conducted and the officer immediately detected an odour of alcoholic beverage coming from the driver.
After failing a roadside test the man was arrested and transported to the police station, where further testing confirmed he had more than the legal amount of alcohol in his system.
A 42-year-old Kitchener man is charged with impaired driving. His licence was suspended for 90 days and his vehicle was impounded for seven days. He will appear in court January 2.
