TOWNSHIP OF PUSLINCH - On Tuesday May 21, 2019 members of the Wellington County Ontario Provincial Police were conducting a Reduce Impaired Driving Everywhere check on Gore Road in Puslinch Township. At approximately 8:30 p.m., the driver of a black sedan entered the R.I.D.E. check.

While speaking with the male driver, officers formed the opinion that he was under the influence of alcohol. A roadside screening test was conducted which resulted in a fail. He was arrested and brought to a local OPP operations centre for further testing.

As a result, Goordyal Brigmohan, 66 years old of Cambridge, has been charged with impaired operation - 80 plus (mgs of alcohol in 100mL of blood) contrary to the Criminal Code.

A 90-day administrative driver's licence suspension and seven-day vehicle impoundment was initiated as per statute. He is scheduled to appear in Guelph Court on June 25, 2019.
