At approximately 10:45 a.m. on Friday, May 4, 2018 a Huron County Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) officer observed a black GMC Sierra travelling northbound on Bluewater Veteran's Highway in an erratic manner. A traffic stop was conducted to check on the sobriety of the driver and while speaking with the driver the officer noted the driver had consumed some alcohol.

He subsequently provided two samples of his breath to a qualified Intoxilizer Technician and both of his samples registered over the legal limit.
