(TOWNSHIP OF GUELPH-ERAMOSA, ON) - On Saturday December 29, 2018 at approximately 8:30 p.m. Wellington County Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) were conducting R.I.D.E. spot checks on Highway 7 near Cobblestone Place where they investigated the male driver of a grey motor vehicle that entered into the check point.



While speaking with the driver, officers observed an open container of alcohol between his legs and detected an odour of alcohol on his breath. The driver completed a standard field sobriety test which was performed poorly. Officers determined that his ability to operate a motor vehicle was impaired by alcohol and he was placed under arrest. He was transported to a local OPP Operations Centre for further testing.
