KAWARTHA LAKES: A 24 year-old Lindsay man is now facing impaired driving charges, after going through a local drive-thru on Wednesday, Oct. 6th.
Police were called to the scene at a Kent St. West fast food restaurant, at about 10:55 p.m., after staff suspected a patron was impaired.
After making observations of the driver, the officer requested that the driver of the vehicle blow into a roadside screening device, which registered a fail. The man was then arrested and taken to Kawartha Lakes Police, where he was provided a breathalyzer, and registered readings nearly one and one half times the legal limit.
24 year-old Mason Carl Stata, of Lindsay, was charged with Exceeding .08mg, for having more than the legal limit of alcohol in his blood. He was also charged with being a novice driver, and having a blood alcohol limit of more than zero.
His licence was suspended for 90 days, and the vehicle he was operating was impounded for 7 days. Mr. Stata will appear in the Lindsay, Ontario Court of Justice, on Thursday, Nov. 3rd.
