(SOUTH HURON, ON) - Huron County Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) has charged a 60-year-old South Huron resident with Impaired Operation by a Drug following a traffic stop that took place in Exeter this past weekend.

At around 11:37 a.m. on Sunday, September 16, 2018 Huron OPP members received information about a car that was travelling northbound on London Road (Highway 4) heading into Exeter in an erratic manner. Within a few minutes police had the suspect vehicle stopped at the north end of Exeter and were speaking with the driver.

Upon speaking with the male driver the investigating officer had reason to believe the driver was impaired by a drug, thus the driver was placed under arrest and transported to the Lucan OPP Detachment for a Drug Recognition Evaluation (DRE). The driver submitted to the DRE's evaluation and the driver was deemed to be impaired by a drug.

Brian VICKERS, 60 years of age from South Huron has been charged with Impaired Operation by a Drug. He has since been released from custody with a court appearance scheduled for November 22, 2018 at the Ontario Court of Justice - Exeter. His licence has been suspended for an automatic 90 days and his vehicle has been impounded for seven days.
