(MORRIS-TURNBERRY, ON) – A Teeswater resident is facing a charge of Operation While Impaired – Blood Alcohol Concentration (BAC) 80 Plus following a traffic stop conducted this past weekend.
On September 5, 2021 at approximately 12:50 a.m. a sport utility vehicle entered into a Reduce Impaired Driving Everywhere (RIDE) checkpoint located on Josephine Street at the north end of Wingham. Upon speaking with the driver the investigating officer had reason to believe the driver had consumed some alcohol. As a result a roadside screening test was conducted and ultimately failed by the driver.
The driver was then placed under arrest and was transported to the Huron OPP Detachment for breath tests. Two samples of breath were later provided to the Intoxilizer Technician and both tests were found to be above the legal limit.
Wesley STANGEN, 31 years of age from Teeswater has been charged with Operation While Impaired – Blood Alcohol Concentration (BAC) 80 Plus. He has since been released from custody with a court appearance scheduled for October 25, 2021.
