Port Saunders RCMP Arrest Man for Impaired Driving #nltraffic

A 31-year-old Eddies Cove West man was arrested by Port Saunders RCMP on July 3, following a traffic stop in Hawkes Bay.

Shortly before 9:00 p.m. on Friday evening, RCMP stopped a vehicle on Route 430 in the community.

Police suspected the driver was impaired by a drug.

The man failed roadside sobriety testing and was arrested for drug-impaired driving. He was transported to the detachment and completed a Drug Influence Evaluation.

Officers obtained a blood sample from the driver at the local hospital, which will be sent for analysis to determine if charges of drug-impaired driving are appropriate.

The investigation is continuing.
