Vacationing cops help arrest man
LIVERPOOL, N.S. - Vacationing police officers from Ontario and Nova Scotia sprung into action to stop an alleged drunk driver involved in a hit-and-run. Police say the driver was spotted by two off-duty officers - from Nova Scotia RCMP and Ontario’s Waterloo Regional Police Service - as well as an auxiliary Toronto police constable around noon Wednesday near Liverpool, N.S. RCMP said a green Chevy Cavalier had been seen driving erratically in the Hunt’s Point area, crossing the centre line and sideswiping an oncoming vehicle, before continuing to a local resort. The police officers, all unknown to each other beforehand but vacationing at the resort, thought the driver appeared to be unconscious. A 46-year-old Liverpool man is charged with drunk driving, failing to remain at a crash scene, driving with a revoked licence and driving without insurance.
