Natuashish man arrested for impaired driving and providing false name to police

A driver from Natuashish is facing charges of impaired operation of a vehicle and obstruction of justice after police responded to a report of a suspected impaired driver in the community last Tuesday.

Officers located the vehicle and conducted a traffic stop. The driver failed a roadside breath test and was taken back to the detachment, where breath samples provided were twice the legal limit.

The driver was charged with impaired driving and released to appear in court at a later date but was subsequently arrested again for providing a false name and was then charged with the additional offence of obstruction.

The accused will appear in court at a later date.
