On Tuesday, August 15, 2017 shortly after 2:00 p.m. a concerned citizen telephoned police to report a possible impaired driver and provided the vehicle and driver description.

A community Patrol Officer located the vehicle now parked in a lot on Edmondson Street (50-100 block).  The male was sitting in the driver’s seat and had his seat reclined. The accused displayed signs of impairment and was arrested for Impaired Driving- Care and Control of a Motor Vehicle. The accused was uncooperative with police and began kicking the interior of the police cruiser. The accused was transported to the Brantford Police Service where he refused to provide samples of his breath as required by law.
