CHARGES POSSIBLE AFTER EX-PQ LEADER ARRESTED IN CRASH
Former Parti- Québécois leader André Boisclair has been arrested in Quebec City and could face charges of impaired driving, intimidation and refusing a blood-alcohol test in connection with a road accident. Quebec City police say they arrested a 51-year-old man at 12:35 a.m. Thursday after a car ran into a lamp post. “At the police station, the suspect refused to blow into the alcohol testing device,” said police spokesperson Étienne Doyon. “He also tried to intimidate police officers.” Boisclair, pictured, was detained overnight and released around 11 a.m. on a promise to appear in court Feb. 15. He was seen leaving the station but answered no questions. According to a police statement, the individual arrested could face charges of impaired driving, refusing a blood-alcohol test, attempting to intimidate police and obstruction.
