At 11:30 pm last night, Charlottetown Police Services responded to a complaint of a possible impaired driver on Kent Street. Officers located the vehicle on University Avenue and initiated a traffic stop. The vehicle driver displayed signs of being impaired by alcohol and was arrested.
A 38 year old Charlottetown male was subsequently charged with impaired operation of a motor vehicle after providing breath samples that were twice the legal limit. The accused will appear in Provincial Court at a later date.
