(HOWICK, ON) - A call to police about a vehicle with a passed out driver in it has led to charges against a male from Clifford.

Just before 3:00 p.m. on Wednesday, August 29, 2018 Huron County Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) received a call from a witness that requested police check on a male driver that was observed to be passed out in his vehicle that was parked on Mud Lake Line.

A short while later a South Bruce OPP officer located the suspect vehicle parked with the vehicle running and the driver sleeping in the vehicle. Upon speaking with the driver the investigating officer noted the driver had been consuming some alcohol and was impaired.

The driver was placed under arrest for Having Care & Control of a Motor Vehicle While Impaired and was subsequently transported to the Walkerton OPP detachment for breath tests. He subsequently provided two samples of his breath to a qualified Intoxilizer Technician and both of his samples registered over the legal limit.

Michael TRUAX, 32 years of age, from Clifford has been charged with Care & Control of a Motor Vehicle With Over 80 Milligrams of Alcohol and Care & Control of a Motor Vehicle While Impaired. He has since been released from custody custody with a court date scheduled for September 19, 2018 at the Ontario Court of Justice - Walkerton. His vehicle has been towed and his licence has been suspended for an automatic 90 days.
