Port Hawkesbury traffic stop nets impaired driving charge
Passenger, 17, facing weapons charge
Charges are pending against two people in Port Hawkesbury after RCMP stopped a vehicle in that town early Saturday morning.
RCMP Sgt. Alain LeBlanc said officers in a patrol car noticed a car being driven erratically.
“Our members stopped that vehicle. Three individuals were in the vehicle. Basically the driver — 22-year old male from Port Hawkesbury — was found to be impaired. And he was taken in for breathalyzer and he failed the breathalyzer. In addition to this, a 17-year-old passenger in the car was found to be in possession of a weapon for a dangerous purpose," he said.
LeBlanc said the weapon was not a firearm. He said the youth will also be charged with failing to comply with an undertaking.
The driver of the car will be in court in Port Hawkesbury on Dec. 16.
