Man told po­lice he drove while drunk

The Guardian (Charlottetown) - - THE ISLAND -

A 24-year-old man who was found in a park­ing lot out­side his run­ning car was sen­tenced Mon­day to three days in jail for hav­ing care and con­trol of a ve­hi­cle while im­paired.

William Nlon­dog Lipem ap­peared be­fore Chief Judge Nancy Orr in pro­vin­cial court in Charlottetown for sen­tenc­ing af­ter pre­vi­ously plead­ing guilty.

The court heard that on June 30 at around 4:15 a.m. the RCMP re­sponded to a com­plaint about a man and a woman fight­ing on the side of the road.

When the RCMP found Lipem’s ve­hi­cle it was parked at a gas sta­tion with the en­gine run­ning.

The RCMP saw Lipem walk­ing to­ward the ve­hi­cle and he ad­mit­ted driv­ing it there.

Lipem later gave breath­a­lyzer sam­ples that were above the le­gal limit. Along with the jail time, Orr fined Lipem $1,000 and or­dered him to pay a $300 vic­tim sur­charge. Lipem is banned from driv­ing for one year.
