SQ apprehend driver with blood alcohol more than three times the legal limit

Shortly after 7 p.m. on March 16, police officers from the Sûreté du Québec, from the Argenteuil MRC station, were informed that a man, possibly intoxicated, was driving towards Lachute. Police were able to locate and intercept the vehicle on Principale Street in Browsburg-Chatham. After the usual checks, police arrested the driver. The 35-year-old man from Browsburg-Chatham was arrested and then released on subpoena. He will have to appear at a later date at the Saint-Jérôme courthouse where he could face charges of driving under the influence.

In addition to having his vehicle seized for a period of 30 days, his driver’s license was suspended for a period of 90 days, and was fined $ 3,053 because he was driving with a license that included a condition of his vehicle being equipped with an alcohol ignition interlock device, but this vehicle did not have the device and he put a vehicle back into circulation while it was stored.

The driver’s blood alcohol level was more than three times the legal limit.
