At 9:15 pm last night (Feb 22), Charlottetown Police Services responded to a complaint of two intoxicated males causing a disturbance and not following masking rules at a business on Capital Drive.  Responding Officers spoke with the males upon arrival and determined that both were under the influence of alcohol and had been belligerent with staff and not following masking rules inside the business establishment.  Both were asked to leave and did so without issue and confirmed to Police that there were not driving and were on foot.

An e-watch camera in the area captured the men enter a vehicle that was parked on the Lower Malpeque Road and head west on Capital Drive.  The responding Officers were able to catch up to the vehicle and pull it over near the Causeway.  The driver was arrested and taken back to the Police station to provide breath samples.

A 23 year old Cornwall male was subsequently charged with impaired operation of a motor vehicle.   The accused will appear in Provincial Court at a later date.

Charlottetown Police Services encourage the public to report any instances of impaired driving…Call 911.
