Wallaceburg man arrested for driving drunk after 'nice OPP officer' sent him home in cab
57-year-old from Wallaceburg charged
Police in Lambton County are suggesting that when a "nice OPP officer" sends you home in a taxi, you shouldn't return to drive your vehicle while intoxicated.
On Saturday evening, police got a call from a concerned citizen at a restaurant in Corunna who had interceded when a drunk couple appeared to be getting ready to drive away.
Officers explained the importance of not driving while intoxicated, but a short time after the man and woman were driven away in a cab, police found the same man driving the vehicle that had been left in the restaurant parking lot.
A 57-year-old from Wallaceburg has been charged with impaired driving.
