Several images obtained from the news release depict the vehicle in a significantly battered condition, with multiple damaged windows and shattered windshields.

Upon engaging the driver, the police officer detected clear signs of intoxication. Consequently, the driver was apprehended and subsequently transported to the Kapuskasing detachment for elaborate medical examination.

Post investigation, the accused was indicted on charges of impaired driving, as well as obstructed view – both to the front and the rear of the motor vehicle.

In addition to the charges, the individual was served with a 90-day administrative driver’s license suspension. The vehicle in question was also seized for a period of seven days, the cost of which was levied upon the owner.

Following this series of events, the accused was released, with a court appearance scheduled for September 26 to answer the charges.

At this stage, it is important to note that none of the allegations have been legally substantiated in court.

The local police took this opportunity to sternly remind the masses, via a public statement, of the grave dangers that impaired driving can pose, irrespective of the substance leading to the impairment. The police message was clear, “Whether a driver is impaired by alcohol or drugs, impaired is impaired.”.
