27 Year Old Arrested For Drunk Driving

(HURON EAST, ON) – Huron County Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) has charged a Huron East resident with Impaired Operation – Blood Alcohol Concentration (80 Plus) following a failed roadside test on November 11th at approximately 10:32 p.m. on Brandon Road, near Ethel. 

At approximately 10:20 p.m. a Huron County OPP officer was patrolling Eastbound on Brandon Road when they observed a Westbound Chevrolet Cruze fail to make a complete stop at Ethel Line, then turn Southbound. A traffic stop was initiated which led to the investigating officer conducting a roadside screening device test on the driver. The roadside breath test resulted in a failure and the driver was placed under arrest and taken into custody. 

The accused was then transported to the Huron OPP Detachment for further breath tests. Two samples of breath were supplied to the Intoxilyzer Technician and both tests were found to be over the legal limit. 

Justin SCHOTT, 27 years of age from Huron East has been charged with Operation While Impaired – Blood Alcohol Concentration (80 Plus), as well as two offences under the Highway Traffic Act (HTA).

The involved vehicle was towed and impounded for seven days, and the accused’ driver’s license was suspended for a period of 90 days.

The accused has since been released from custody with a court appearance scheduled for December 19, 2022, at the Ontario Court of Justice – Goderich.
