Drivers charged with impaired driving

On Sunday January 6, 2019 at approximately  1 a.m., Hawkesbury OPP Constable V. Giocondese was conducting speed enforcement on County Road 17 in the Champlain Township, when he intercepted a black 2018 Hyundai Santa Fe for speeding.

Interaction with the male driver gave the officer reason to believe that he had operated his motor vehicle with blood alcohol content over 80 mgs.

Consequently, the driver, a 34-year-old from Brossard Quebec, was arrested and charged under the Criminal Code of Canada with “Operation while impaired – blood alcohol concentration (80 plus)”.

He was also charged under the Highway Traffic Act with “Speeding 1 – 49 Km/h over posted limit”.

The vehicle was seized for 7 days and the driver’s licence was immediately suspended for 90 days.

He was later released and appeared at the Ontario Court of Justice located in L’Orignal on January 23, 2019.

On Thursday January 10, 2019 at approximately 10:45 p.m., Hawkesbury OPP officer J. Bailey was conducting a R.I.D.E. initiative on County Road 9 and County Road 26 in Plantagenet, when a white 2017 Ford Escape stopped at the checkpoint.

Interaction with the male driver gave the officer reason to believe that he had operated his motor vehicle with blood alcohol content over 80 mgs.

Consequently, the driver, a 32-year-old man from Orleans Ontario, was arrested and charged under the Criminal Code of Canada with “Operation while impaired – blood alcohol concentration (80 plus)”.

The traffic stop resulted in locating open alcohol inside the vehicle.  He was also charged under the Liquor Licence Act with “Driving motor vehicle with open container of liquor”.

The vehicle was seized for 7 days and the driver’s licence was immediately suspended for 90 days.

He was later released and scheduled to appear at the Ontario Court of Justice located in L’Orignal on February 13, 2019.

 On January 11, 2019 close to midnight, Hawkesbury OPP officer S. Boudreau was patrolling County road 17, east of Tupper Street in the East Hawkesbury Township, when he intercepted a grey 2005 Honda Civic.

Interaction with the male driver gave the officer reason to believe that he had driven his motor vehicle with his abilities impaired by drug.

Consequently, the driver, a 20-year-old man from St-Eugene Ontario, was arrested and charged under the Criminal Code of Canada with “Operation while impaired – alcohol and drugs”.

He was also charged under the Highway Traffic Act with the following sections:

-Young driver – presence of drug

-Improper muffler – motor vehicle

The vehicle was seized for 7 days and the driver’s licence was immediately suspended for 90 days.

He was later released and scheduled to appear at the Ontario Court of Justice located in L’Orignal on January 23, 2019.
