On January 5th Morden Police were called to a possible impaired driver leaving a local establishment.

The vehicle in question was observed turning off South Railway onto 9th street into a parking lot. Officers followed the vehicle and upon speaking with the driver of the vehicle there were signs of impairment, including an odour of liquor and slurred speech. The driver had difficulties following direction and was uncoordinated when looking for his license.

Police arrested the driver for impaired driving and at this time he became belligerent with police and began to resist. The individual was eventually placed in handcuffs and transported to the Morden Police Service for testing.

During a search of the accused, a small quantity of marijuana was found and officers located several open containers of liquor inside the vehicle.

A pair of breath tests were conducted and resulted in readings of 180mg%, which is over twice the legal limit.

The 41-year-old Morden man has been charged with Driving Impaired, Drive over .08, Possession of a Controlled Substance as well as Breach of Undertaking.  

The accused was placed on an Undertaking on November 9th, 2017 with conditions to abstain from the consumption of alcohol or other intoxicating substances.  

He was released on a Promise to Appear and will be appearing in Morden Provincial Court in February.
