Impaired Driver Charged for Being Over 4 Times the Legal Limit

An adult female resident of Windsor has been charged by the LaSalle Police Service with impaired driving and excess blood alcohol after she was stopped by police on Malden Road in LaSalle Thursday evening. The vehicle caught the officer’s attention after it made a number of maneuvers that caused them to suspect that the driver may be impaired. While speaking with the driver, the officer made observations that further confirmed their suspicions. The female was arrested and transported to the LaSalle Police Service where further tests were conducted that revealed that her blood alcohol concentration was more than four times the legal limit of .080 mgs. As a precaution, and due to the high level of alcohol consumption, medical attention was sought and she was later released with a court date to answer to the charges. Her vehicle was seized and impounded for a period of 7 days and her driver’s licence was automatically suspended for a period of 90 days.
