A Northern Ontario man is charged with impaired driving following a traffic stop in Guelph Thursday.

Police say approximately 6:20 p.m. a traffic stop was conducted on Silvercreek Parkway North after a vehicle was seen leaving a licensed establishment. The officer detected an odour of alcohol on the driver’s breath.

After failing a roadside breath test the driver was arrested and transported to the police station, where further testing confirmed he had more than the legal amount of alcohol in his system.

A 48-year-old Kapuskasing man is charged with impaired driving. His licence was immediately suspended for 90 days and his vehicle was impounded for seven days. He will appear in court May 31.
