Borden-Carleton man faces drug charges after crash
RCMP later discovered the man was in violation of his parole
Police say a Borden-Carleton, P.E.I., man faces charges after he refused to provide a breath sample following a single-vehicle collision early Saturday morning.
East Prince RCMP say they were called to a crash along the highway near North Tryon around 4 a.m.
Officers said the 22-year-old driver had the smell of liquor on his breath, but he refused to take a breathalyzer test and was then arrested.
He's since been charged with refusal to provide a breath sample and possession of cannabis marijuana.
The Mounties say they later discovered the man was in violation of his parole. A warrant was issued for his return to custody in the federal prison system.
The man is scheduled to appear in a Summerside court in late September.
