(HURON EAST, ON) – A teenager from Bluewater is facing an Operation While Impaired – Blood Alcohol Concentration (BAC) 80 Plus charge and others following a traffic stop this weekend in Vanastra.
On December 17, 2021 at approximately 10:22 p.m. a Huron County Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) officer was patrolling on Winnipeg Road in Vanastra when he observed a driver of a car roll through a stop sign. A traffic stop was initiated and while speaking with the driver the investigating officer noted the driver had consumed some alcohol.
A roadside screening test was performed and the driver registered a fail. Upon doing so the driver was placed under arrest and was transported to the Huron OPP Detachment for further testing. The driver provided two samples of breath to the Intoxilizer Technician and both samples were found to be above the legal limit.
A 17-year-old from Bluewater has been charged with Operation While Impaired – Blood Alcohol Concentration (BAC) 80 Plus, Person Under 19 years Having Liquor, Novice Driver BAC Above Zero and Disobey Stop Sign – Fail to Stop. The accused has since been released from custody with an upcoming court appearance at the Youth Justice Court in Goderich.
