Thunder Bay man charged with drunk driving, again
Police say 55-year-old was charged two weeks ago after passing out in drive-thru
Thunder Bay police allege a 55-year-old man "seems intent on repeating his dangerous driving behaviour," after he was arrested for his second drunk driving offence in two weeks.
In a statement, police Staff Sgt. Ryan Gibson said the man was arrested Saturday night after he returned to the scene of a hit-and-run in the 2800 block of Victoria Avenue East.
He faces charges of impaired driving, disqualified operation of a motor vehicle and failing to stop at the scene of an accident, and is due to appear in court on Tuesday.
Police say the same man was arrested two weeks ago, after he had allegedly "passed out in the drive-thru" of a fast food restaurant on Thunder Bay's south side. In that incident, he was charged with failing to stop at the scene of an accident, which police say happened earlier that night on Gore Street East.
None of the charges in either incident has been proven in court.
In the statement issued Sunday, Gibson urged Thunder Bay drivers not to drink and drive, adding, "If [you're] not allowed to drive, don't."
