(CENTRAL HURON, ON) – A South Huron resident is facing criminal charges following a disturbance that took place last night on Union Road.
On Monday, May 16, 2022 at approximately 7:10 p.m. Huron County Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) officers responded to Union Road to investigate a disturbance between a pedestrian and a motorist. Police learned the victim was out for a walk when the driver of a minivan stopped, yelled at the victim, exited his vehicle and approached the victim in a very confrontational manner.
Soon after officers located the suspect vehicle and spoke with the suspect. Upon speaking with the suspect officers noted the driver had been consuming alcohol and was displaying signs of impairment. As a result, the driver was placed under arrest and was transported to the Huron OPP detachment for breath tests. Two breath samples were provided to the Intoxilizer Technician and both tests were found to be over the legal limit.
Christopher LEE, 38 years of age from South Huron has been charged with Assault, Operation While Impaired and Operation While Impaired – Blood Alcohol Concentration (80 Plus). The accused has since been released with a court appearance scheduled for June 13, 2022 at the Ontario Court of Justice – Goderich.
