An officer who was already at the road closure directing traffic, approached the male and began speaking with him. The male was subsequently arrested.

A 47-year-old Guelph man was charged with impaired driving.

His driver’s license was suspended for 90 days and his vehicle was impounded for seven days.

He will appear in court Feb. 5.
