2:30 AM | Mem­bers of the Welling­ton County On­tario Pro­vin­cial Po­lice (OPP) were con­duct­ing a Re­duce Im­paired Driv­ing Ev­ery­where (R.I.D.E.) Check on High­way 7 at Wool­wich/Guelph Town­line when the driver of a 2007 Lexus en­tered the check­point. While speak­ing with the male driver, of­fi­cers formed the opin­ion that he was un­der the in­flu­ence of al­co­hol. A road­side screen­ing test was con­ducted, re­sult­ing in a fail. He was ar­rested and brought to a lo­cal OPP op­er­a­tions cen­tre for fur­ther test­ing. As a re­sult, a 32-year-old Lon­don man was charged with ‘driv­ing with over 80 mgs of al­co­hol in 100mL of blood’ and ‘novice driver with blood-al­co­hol above zero.’ A 90-day driver’s li­cence and seven-day ve­hi­cle im­pound­ment were en­acted. He is sched­uled to at­tend Guelph Pro­vin­cial Court on Novem­ber 28.
