Asleep at the wheel

The Barrie Examiner - - NEWS -

BRAD­FORD – Po­lice had to break a win­dow to wake up the driver of a car parked in the mid­dle of the road here just af­ter mid­night Thurs­day. Of­fi­cers found a car block­ing the in­ter­sec­tion of Maple­grove and Lux­ury av­enues, with its haz­ard lights on and the driver asleep at the wheel, South Sim­coe po­lice said. Knock­ing and shout­ing did not rouse the driver, so po­lice broke a car win­dow to gain ac­cess. Of­fi­cers smelled al­co­hol im­me­di­ately. Po­lice woke up the man and ar­rested him for im­paired driv­ing. A 29-year-old Bee­ton man was taken to the po­lice sta­tion for test­ing, and was held overnight. He was charged with im­paired driv­ing and fail­ing to pro­vide a breath sam­ple. His driver’s li­cence was sus­pended for 90 days, his ve­hi­cle was im­pounded and he was re­leased with a court date later this month.
