A 38-year-old man from Mississauga is facing a couple of charges after an early morning incident on Highway 10 April 26.
Caledon OPP reports they received a complaint shortly after 6 a.m. of a red Ford Focus heading south and being driven erratically. Police were able to find the car south of Charleston Sideroad.
By the time they were able to stop the car, they discovered it had been operating with the left front tire half off its rim. That had caused sparks, as well as debris from the tire flying onto the road.
Upon investigation, the officer determined that the driver’s ability to operate a vehicle was impaired by alcohol, so the man was arrested.
He was charged with driving while his ability was impaired, driving with more than the legal amount of alcohol in his system and dangerous operation of a motor vehicle. His licence was suspended for 90 days, and car was impounded for seven.
Police are expressing appreciation to the citizen who called 9-1-1 to report this incident. They pointed out they can’t be everywhere all the time, so they rely on this kind of help.
