  • Drive while ability impaired
  • Drive over 80

The suspect is scheduled to appear before the Ontario Court of Justice in North Bay on May 2.

Meanwhile on Tuesday, at 4:44 p.m. OPP were called about a vehicle travelling northbound in the southbound lanes of Highway 11 at Highway 654. 

The vehicle and driver were found at a home in Callander.
