On Saturday, July 7, 2018 at approximately 11:17 pm, an officer from the Caledon Detachment of the Ontario Provincial Police was travelling on The Gore Road near Castlederg Ride Road when he observed an expired validation sticker on a black 2002 Chrysler Sebring.

The officer conducted a traffic stop for the Highway Traffic Act violation and spoke to the male driver. While speaking to the driver, the officer detected an odour of an alcoholic beverage emanating from his breath. The officer made an Approved Screening Device Demand, to which a 'FAIL' was registered on the device and the driver was arrested accordingly.

As a result, Neil MATADEEN, 57, of Mississauga was charged with the following offences: Driving with More than 80 mgs. of Alcohol in Blood, Driving While Under Suspension, Drive Motor Vehicle - No Validation on Plate, and Fail to Surrender Insurance Card.

The accused is scheduled to appear before the Ontario Court of Justice in Orangeville on July 26, 2018 to answer to the charges.

The OPP is reminding the public to call 9-1-1 if you suspect that someone is driving while impaired by alcohol or drugs. In doing so, you could be saving lives.
