17 Year Old Drunk Driver Arrested

(BLUEWATER, ON) – A teenager from Bluewater is facing an Operation While Impaired – Blood Alcohol Concentration 80 Plus charge following a traffic stop last weekend in Bayfield.

At approximately 2:48 a.m. on October 30, 2021 a Huron County Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) officer was conducting patrols in Bayfield when a traffic offence was observed on Colina Street. The officer followed the vehicle and a traffic stop was initiated on John Avenue.  Upon speaking with the driver the investigating officer had suspicions the driver had consumed some alcohol.

As a result a roadside screening test was administered and the driver registered a fail. He was placed under arrest and was transported to the Huron OPP Detachment for breath tests. Two samples of breath were provided to the Intoxilizer Technician and both tests were found to be above the legal limit. 

A 17-year-old from Bluewater has been charged with Operation While Impaired – Blood Alcohol Concentration 80 Plus. 

He will have attend Youth Justice Court later this fall to answer to the charge.
