(GODERICH, ON) – Huron County Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) has charged a Goderich resident with Impaired Operation – Blood Alcohol Concentration (80 Plus), following a failed roadside test on October 6th, 2023, at approximately 8:35 p.m. on Suncoast Drive in the Town of Goderich.
Huron County OPP officers were observing traffic in Goderich when they observed two All-Terrain Vehicle (ATV) operators depart a business on Huron Road and proceed westbound. The ATV’s turned onto Suncoast Drive, at which time officers conducted a traffic stop. One of the ATV operators fled, and the second operator stopped their machine. In speaking with the driver, the investigating officer believed that the driver had consumed alcohol prior to driving, which led to 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.
Andrew RYAN, 38 years of age from Goderich has been charged with:
– Operation While Impaired – Blood Alcohol Concentration (80 Plus).
The involved ATV was towed and impounded for seven days, and the accused’ driver’s license was suspended for a period of 90 days.
The accused was released from custody with a court appearance scheduled at the Ontario Court of Justice – Goderich.
