On Friday October 22nd, 2021, at approximately 11:00 p.m., a uniformed member of the Owen Sound Police observed a vehicle in the downtown area of Owen Sound that was being operated in a suspicious manner.  The officer watched the vehicle veer into the oncoming lane, and shortly thereafter, mounted a curb with its two passenger side tires in a residential area.  A traffic stop was conducted and after speaking to the driver it was confirmed that he was showing signs of impairment. 

The driver was arrested for impaired driving and brought to the Owen Sound Police Service where he provided two samples of his breath.  Both samples provided measured more than two times the legal limit of alcohol in his body. 

The 26 year old male from Meaford was charged with impaired operation of a motor vehicle and having over 80mg of alcohol in his blood.  The vehicle involved has been impounded for 7 days and the driver had his licence suspended for 90 days.
