The Guardian (Charlottetown) - - ATLANTIC -

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.
