A 22-year-old Sudbury man is facing an impaired driving charge after being pulled over by the OPP on Chain Lake Road in Markstay-Warren this week.

A 22-year-old Sudbury man is facing an impaired driving charge after being pulled over by the OPP on Chain Lake Road in Markstay-Warren this week.

On Aug. 7, Sudbury OPP said officers responded to a traffic complaint about a vehicle being driven erratically on Chain Lake Road in Markstay-Warren.

Police managed to locate the vehicle about which people were complaining and pulled it over. Officers report that upon speaking to the driver, it was plainly apparent the man had been drinking alcohol.
 
Unfortunately (for him), police said the driver of the vehicle refused to play ball and wouldn’t consent to providing a breath sample. 

As a result, he was arrested and charged with one count of driving while ability impaired, one count of failing or refusing to provide a breath sample, and one count of failing to comply with an undertaking.

He is scheduled to appear in court in Sudbury on Sept. 6 to answer to the charges. Police said his driver's licence was suspended for 90 days and the vehicle he was driving was impounded for seven days.
 
If you see a vehicle and suspect the driver is impaired, the OPP encourage you to call 911 immediately.
