A Michigan man has been arrested in Canada for attempting to drive across the border in Sarnia while drunk, and in a stolen car.

On March 25, Lambton County OPP was called to the Bluewater Bridge to help the Canada Border Services Agency with a suspected impaired driver.

The driver entered the commercial vehicle inspection lane on the Canadian side of the Bluewater Bridge connecting Sarnia, Ont. and Port Huron, Michigan.

While speaking with the driver, CBSA officials determined he had been drinking alcohol and the OPP was called in to help.

Further investigation revealed that the vehicle had been reported stolen. 

A 50 year-old resident of Marine City, Mich., will appear in a Sarnia Court on charges of impaired driving, being over the legal limit, possession of stolen property under $5000 and resisting arrest.
