(CENTRAL HURON, ON) - A young driver from Huron East will be making a trip to court later this summer after he refused to provide a breath sample this past weekend.
On June 28, 2020 at approximately 2:35 a.m. a Huron County Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) officer observed a vehicle parked at a car wash located on Victoria Street in Clinton. The officer decided to check on the sobriety of the driver and as a part of the investigation a breath demand for the roadside screening test was made to the driver.
The driver was given multiple opportunities to provide a suitable sample of his breath, however he failed to do so. As a result he was placed under arrest for Refusal to Comply with a Demand.
A 17-year-old driver from Huron East has been charged with Failure or Refusal to Comply with a Breath Demand. He has since been released from custody with a court appearance scheduled for August 6, 2020 at the Ontario Court of Justice.
