(HURON EAST, ON) - A novice driver from Huron East will be making a trip to court this summer to answer to an Impaired Operation charge after he was caught driving while over the legal limit this past weekend.
On Friday, May 8, 2020 at approximately 12:30 p.m. a Huron County Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) officer observed the driver of a sedan speeding in Clinton. The vehicle was followed and the driver was ultimately stopped near Vanastra. Upon speaking with the driver, the investigating officer requested the driver provide a sample of breath into a roadside screening device.
The driver complied and he registered a Fail on the approved screening device. The driver was promptly arrested and transferred to the Exeter OPP detachment for breath tests. Two samples of breath were provided to the Intoxilizer Technician and both tests were determined to be above the legal limit.
Ryan VANDEWALLE, 19 years of age, from Huron East has been charged with Operation While Impaired - Blood Alcohol Concentration (80 Plus) and Novice Driver Blood Alcohol Concentration Above Zero. He has since been released from custody with a court appearance scheduled for July 6, 2020 at the Ontario Court of Justice - Goderich.
