Northumberland OPP – Oshawa Man Charged With Impaired Driving

In Police Blotter

On Sunday December 14, 2020, members of the Northumberland Detachment of the Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) were conducting a Reduce Impaired Driving Everywhere (RIDE) spot check on County Road 2 east of the town of Brighton.

Just after midnight a white Ford pick-up truck approached the check point. The odour of an alcoholic beverage was emanating from the vehicle that contained two other passengers. A Roadside Screening Device (ASD) was administered to the vehicle operator at the scene resulting in a “fail”. The driver was arrested then transported back to the OPP detachment in Brighton for further testing.

As a result of the investigation a 42-year-old male from Oshawa, Ontario was arrested and charged with:

· Operation while impaired – blood alcohol concentration (80 plus)

The accused was released and is scheduled to appear at the Ontario Court of Justice in Cobourg on January 20, 2021.

The OPP remains committed to enforcing impaired driving laws and educating road users about the dangers posed by motorists who drive while impaired by alcohol or drugs. Drivers need to remember that any amount of alcohol or drugs can impair one’s ability to drive.
