At approximately 9:55 pm Saturday night (June 22), Charlottetown Police responded to a possible impaired driver complaint.  The complainant suspected an impaired driver on Capital Drive that had pulled into a business parking lot.

The responding Officer located the vehicle parked and waited for the driver to return to it.   A short time later, the driver returned to the vehicle and it was determined that he was impaired by alcohol and was arrested.

A 38 year old Charlottetown male was subsequently charged with impaired driving after providing breath samples that were over 3 times the legal limit.  The male is also charged with breach of probation and operating a motor vehicle while prohibited.   Both of these additional charges stem from an impaired driving conviction received last November.  This is the males second impaired driving charge in less then a year.

The accused was released from custody 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.
