(HURON EAST, ON) - Combatting impaired driving is a community issue and certainly takes the efforts of everyone to keep our roadways safe. Huron County Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) frequently receive calls from members of the public about possible impaired drivers and every single call is treated as a priority. Last weekend a call from a member of the public about a suspected impaired driver resulted in police removing another impaired driver off of Huron County roadways.

On Friday, February 21, 2020 at 6:45 p.m. Huron OPP members received a traffic complaint of a suspected impaired driver that was operating a pickup truck near Seaforth. Shortly thereafter an OPP officer spotted the suspect vehicle heading eastbound on Highway 8 out of Seaforth. A traffic stop was conducted and upon speaking with the driver the investigating officer noted the driver had consumed some alcohol. A roadside screening test was conducted and the driver subsequently registered a fail. As a result the driver was arrested and transported to the Exeter OPP detachment for breath tests.

The driver subsequently provided two samples of his breath to the qualified intoxilizer technician and both of his test results were analyzed to be above the legal limit.



Jacob ASHBY, 25 years of age, from Mitchell has been charged with Operation While Impaired - Blood Alcohol Concentration (BAC) 80 Plus. He was also served with a 90-day driver's licence suspension and his vehicle was impounded. He has been released from custody with a court date scheduled for March 23, 2020 at the Ontario Court of Justice - Goderich.
