(SOUTH HURON, ON) – Huron County Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) has charged a South Huron resident with a total of eight offences including Impaired Charges following a series of traffic violations on April 7th in the Town of Exeter.
Huron County OPP officers were patrolling near the South Huron Recreation Centre in Exeter at approximately 7:10 p.m. Police observed a motorist fail to stop for several stop signs at which time the officer attempted to stop the involved vehicle. The driver initially failed to stop for police, increasing their speed through the side streets. The driver eventually pulled over, and in speaking to the driver, the investigating officer determined that the driver had consumed alcohol prior to driving and was subsequently arrested for Impaired Operation.
The individual was transported to the Huron OPP detachment in Clinton to provide breath tests before a qualified Intoxilyzer Technician. Suitable breath samples were provided to police which resulted in readings over three times the legal limit.
Craig GLAVIN, 45 years of age from South Huron has been charged with:
– Operation while Impaired,
– Operation while Impaired – Over 80,
– Flight from Peace Officer.
The accused was also charged with five additional offences found in the Highway Traffic Act and Liquor Licence Control Act.
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 May 8th, 2023, at the Ontario Court of Justice – Goderich.
