(SOUTH HURON, ON) - Huron County Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) has charged a 26-year-old from Exeter with Over 80 following a traffic complaint that took place in Exeter over the weekend.

At approximately 2:15 a.m. on Saturday, June 22, 2019 Huron OPP officers received a call about a possible impaired driver that was asleep behind the wheel of his vehicle while in the drive-thru of a restaurant.

While en-route to the dispatch address, the suspect vehicle went mobile so officers began patrolling around the area for the suspect vehicle. Within a few minutes an officer observed the suspect vehicle pulling into a laneway at the Norwood Village Trailer Park. Upon speaking with the driver the investigating officer noted the driver had consumed some alcohol. As a result, a demand was made for him to provide a sample of his breath into an approved screening device. The driver complied and he registered a fail on the roadside. He was placed under arrest and was transported to the Lucan OPP Detachment for breath tests. The driver complied and supplied two breath samples of his breath to the qualified Intoxilizer Technician; both tests were above the legal limit.

Graham BEDARD, 26 years of age, from Exeter has been charged with Operation While Impaired - Blood Alcohol Concentration (BAC) 80 Plus. He was later released from custody with a court date scheduled for July 25, 2019 at the Ontario Court of Justice - Goderich. His vehicle was impounded and his licence has been suspended for an automatic 90 days.
