Upon stopping the vehicle the investigating officer recognized the driver and was aware that he was driving with a suspended driver's licence. As such the driver was placed under arrest for driving while under suspension.
Additionally, the investigating officer noted the driver was displaying signs of impairment thus a Standard Field Sobriety Test (SFST) was conducted. The driver performed poorly and was arrested for Impaired Operation. A search incident to arrest revealed the driver to be in possession of a quantity of suspected cocaine.
The accused was transported to the Sebringville OPP Detachment for subsequent testing conducted by a Drug Recognition Expert (DRE). Ultimately it was deemed the driver was indeed impaired by a drug.
