At approximately 00:50 this morning (June 13), Charlottetown Police Services responded to reports of a vehicle that had struck a light standard in the round about on St Peters Road intersecting with Oakland Drive.   Upon arrival Police observed the vehicle but the driver was not in the vehicle.  Police located a male walking on Oakland Drive and detained him for the purpose of the collision investigation.  The male initially provided police a false name but Officers were able to make a positive ID and determined that he was impaired by alcohol. The male was arrested and brought back to the Police Station where he refused to provide adequate breath samples.

A 20 year old North Bedeque male has been charged with refusing to provide a breath sample upon demand and obstructing Police.  He will appear in Provincial Court at a later date.

Charlottetown Police Services is reminding the public  to  plan ahead and never get behind the wheel when their ability to drive is impaired by drugs or alcohol.

The Police Service wishes to thank concerned citizens for reporting possible impaired drivers.   The public is encouraged to report instances of suspected impaired driving by calling 911.
