Police laid charges against two individuals accused of impaired driving over the weekend in Bradford.

On Sunday evening, officers were called to a fail-to-remain collision on Holland Street East.

After locating the suspect vehicle, officers arrested a 29-year-old man from Bradford.

He faces charges of operating a vehicle while impaired, failing to comply with a police demand, dangerous operation of a vehicle, failing to stop after an accident, failing to report an accident, having a blood alcohol content above zero as a novice driver, and having cannabis readily available in the vehicle.

Then in the early morning hours on Monday, police were notified of a driver asleep at the wheel at the intersection of Dissette Street and Holland Street.

They located the vehicle on the 8th Line and conducted a traffic stop.

Officers charged a 49-year-old man from Newmarket with operating a vehicle while impaired and operating a vehicle with an excess of blood alcohol.

In both cases, the driver's licences were suspended for 90 days, and both vehicles involved were impounded for one week. Top Stories
