Const. Burns said upon arrival, an officer spoke with the driver and after observing distinct signs of impairment by drug.

“The man was arrested and read a demand requiring the male to undergo testing to determine drug impairment,’ he said. “Once back at the detachment, it was determined that the 20-year-old male from Mosherville was in fact impaired by drug.”

He will be charged with impaired driving related offences.

The man’s name can not be disclosed due to the fact that he has yet to be charged, said Const. Burns.
