The Compass - - Sports -

It took two police cars to stop a ve­hi­cle that had been speed­ing in a res­i­den­tial area near Dunville on Sept. 9.

Ac­cord­ing to a RCMP re­lease, the driver, a 19-year-old woman from Spa­niard’s Bay, would not ini­tially pull over for police.

The woman fi­nally re­lented when a sec­ond police car that was in the area pro­vided as­sis­tance.

The woman, who was driv­ing with a sus­pended driver’s li­cence, was also found to have been drink­ing, a vi­o­la­tion of the zero-blood al­co­hol con­cen­tra­tion law for driv­ers un­der the age of 22.

Police say there were other pas­sen­gers in the ve­hi­cle, which con­tained open al­co­hol and a small quan­tity of drugs.

The ve­hi­cle was im­pounded for 30 days. Charges to the driver were laid un­der the High­way Traf­fic Act and the Liquor Con­trol Act.

A 20-year-old man, who was also in the ve­hi­cle, was charged un­der the Con­trolled Drugs and Sub­stances Act.
