(SOUTH HURON, ON) - A Bluewater resident is facing some criminal charges following an impaired driving incident that also turned into an assault police investigation.

At approximately 10:00 p.m. on July 16, 2020 a Huron County Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) officer observed a pickup truck exit a restaurant on Main Street South in an erratic fashion. The driver squealed the tires and took off at a high rate of speed heading southbound.

A traffic stop was conducted and a roadside screening test was completed. Upon failing the roadside test the driver resisted arrest and in the process he assaulted the arresting officer. The driver was transported to the Huron Detachment where he provided two samples of his breath to a qualified Intoxilizer Technician; both samples were analyzed to be over the legal limit.

Devon TAYLOR, 29 years of age from Bluewater has been charged with Operation While Impaired - Blood Alcohol Concentration Above Zero (80 Plus), Assault a Peace Officer, Resist Peace Officer and Stunt Driving.

He has since been released from custody with a court appearance scheduled for October 19, 2020.
