3:30 AM | A 26-year-old Guelph man faces a drinkingand-driving charge after being stopped in a Reduce Impaired Driving Everywhere (R.I.D.E.) check on Highway 7, near the Guelph/ Woolwich Towline. After entering the checkpoint, the driver of a Ford pickup truck was questioned by a Wellington County OPP officer who formed the opinion that the driver was under the influence of alcohol. A roadside screening test was conducted, which resulted in a fail. He was arrested and brought to a local OPP operations centre for further testing and subsequently charged with ‘driving with over 80 mgs of alcohol in 100mL of blood.’ His licence was suspended for 90 days and his vehicle impounded for seven days as per statute. He is scheduled to appear in a Guelph courtroom on July 28.
