(KINGSVILLE, ON) - On July 21, 2018 at approximately 11:00 p.m. the Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) responded to an erratic driving complaint that began in Leamington, Ontario.
A motor vehicle was travelling at a high rate of speed and reportedly forcing other motor vehicles off of the roadway.
Patrol officers located the vehicle travelling into Kingsville on County Road 20 at a speed more than twice the posted limit. The vehicle was stopped and the driver exhibited signs of impairment and was arrested.
Dwight ROSS-MINOQUE age 23 of Windsor, Ontario will appear in a Windsor court on August 9, 2018 charged with the following:
Dangerous Operation of a Motor Vehicle
Impaired Operation of a Motor Vehicle
Fail or Refuse to Provide Breath Sample
His motor vehicle was seized and his driver's licence suspended as per the regulations of the Highway Traffic Act of Ontario.
"The residents of Essex County are to be commended for immediately contacting the OPP when erratic driving is observed. It's unfortunate that certain individuals continue to disregard our drinking and driving laws and put others at risk including themselves. Having a drivers licence is a privilege and the goal of everyone is to drive responsibly and that cannot occur when under the influence of drugs or alcohol."
