Three people were arrested for impaired driving over the weekend in Guelph, including one who also faces weapons and threatening charges, say Guelph police.

Just before 10 p.m. Saturday night, Guelph police were dispatched to a reported disturbance in the area of Woodlawn Road East and Country Club Drive. Investigation revealed two people were involved in an argument when a male, who was intoxicated, uttered some threats and then drove away. He returned a short time later and was still on scene when police arrived.

During the investigation a pair of brass knuckles were recovered.

A 35-year-old Hamilton male is charged with uttering threats, mischief, impaired operation and unauthorized possession of a weapon.

On Friday afternoon, officers were dispatched to a business on Victoria Road North after a witness saw a male sitting in a car drinking a beer. Officers approached the vehicle and could detect an odour of alcoholic beverage.

Investigation led to a 67-year-old Guelph male being arrested for impaired driving and several Highway Traffic Act violations. His driver’s licence was suspended for 90 days and his vehicle was impounded for seven days.

On Sunday, a Guelph female was arrested for impaired driving after driving aggressively with children in her vehicle. Police received a complaint approximately 9:20 p.m. of an SUV tailgating and flashing its high beams in the area of Willow Road and Westwood Road. Police stopped the vehicle and detected a strong odour of alcoholic beverage. Two children were observed in the back seat.

The driver was arrested and transported to the police station, where testing confirmed she had more than the legal amount of alcohol in her system.
