(HOWICK, ON) – A resident of Howick will have to answer to an Impaired Operation charge following his arrest on Valentine’s Day by Huron County Ontario Provincial Police (OPP).
On February 14, 2021 at approximately 5:00 p.m. Huron County OPP officers received a complaint in Gorrie about a person that was plowing snow with an All-Terrain Vehicle (ATV) that may be intoxicated. Officers arrived at a Victoria Street residence a short time later and were able to locate the ATV operator.
Upon speaking with the suspect the investigating officer noted the operator was displaying several signs of impairment. As such the driver was placed under arrest and transported to the Huron OPP Detachment for breath tests; both tests were found to be above the legal limit by the Intoxilizer Technician.
Christopher KELLY, 39 years of age from Howick has been charged with Impaired Operation and Operation While Impaired – Blood Alcohol Concentration (BAC) 80 Plus. The accused has since been released from custody with a court date scheduled for April 12, 2021 at the Ontario Court of Justice – Goderich.
