A Guelph male subject to two lifetime driving prohibitions for impaired operation was arrested Tuesday after he was caught behind the wheel.

Just after 4 p.m., officers saw the male driving on Eramosa Road near Woolwich Street and knew him to be a prohibited driver. The vehicle was stopped and the male arrested without incident.

A 49-year-old Guelph male is charged with two counts each of driving while disqualified under the Criminal Code and driving while suspended under the Highway Traffic Act. He will appear in a Guelph court Feb. 22.

The vehicle, which was not registered in his name, was impounded for 45 days.
