Officer Does Double Take

 

An East Division Patrol Officer stopped a vehicle twice within four
hours last night resulting in the driver being charged both times with
impaired driving.
 
At 8:40 p.m., an officer observed a vehicle being operated in a manner
that raised the concern that the driver might have been impaired. The
vehicle was pulled over in the 100 block of Isley Avenue and the
43-year-old male driver was arrested. He was taken to the East Division
Office on Mellor Avenue where he failed a breath test and was released
with a court date. The officer called a taxi to take the man home.
 
At 11:56 p.m., the same officer observed the same vehicle that he
stopped earlier in the evening, pulling out of a parking lot in the 100
block of Isley Avenue. The officer pulled the vehicle over and
discovered the driver was the same man who was charged a few hours
earlier. The driver was arrested and returned to the East Division
Office, where he again failed a breath test. He was transported to
booking where he was held until he was sober.
 
The man faces two counts of impaired driving and two counts of having a
blood alcohol level that exceeds the legal limit. He is scheduled to
appear in Dartmouth Provincial Court on November 15.
 
Driving while under the influence of alcohol and/or drugs puts everyone
in danger. In December 2009, MADD Canada and the Province of Nova Scotia
launched Campaign 911 which encourages people to call police with
information on suspected impaired drivers. HRM Partners in Policing
continue to be encouraged by the number of citizens helping to play a
role in community safety. If you have information on a drunk driver,
please call 911.
