NEWS RELEASE
SOUTH SIMCOE POLICE SERVICE
*************************
BRADFORD - On Saturday, April 14, 2018 around 1:30 p.m., a uniform South Simcoe Police Service officer was at the LCBO on Holland Avenue in Bradford for an unrelated investigation when he was approached by a citizen about a possible impaired driver in the parking lot. The citizen said a man had attempted to buy alcohol, left the store and was seen getting into a vehicle.  

Police approached the driver as he was reversing out of a parking spot and motioned him to stop. The officer then engaged the driver in conversation and detected an odour of alcohol. An approved screening device demand was made and a roadside test conducted which registered a fail.

The driver was arrested for over 80 and was transported to South Division. Two further tests resulted in readings of over 80. A 64-year-old Bradford West Gwillimbury man was charged accordingly and released on a promise to appear in court. His license was suspended 90 days and his vehicle impounded for seven days.
