GUELPH – A Cambridge man faces impaired driving charges after a traffic stop in Guelph Wednesday evening.

Just before 9 p.m. a Guelph police officer was en route to an unrelated matter. As the officer drove on Wellington Street East at Gordon Street he activated his emergency lights and horn in an attempt to pass another vehicle, however the vehicle did not pull to the side.

The officer observed the vehicle crossing the centre line several times and conducted a traffic stop. The driver had an odour of alcoholic beverage on his breath and his speech was slurred.

He was arrested and transported to the police station, where testing confirmed he had approximately four times the legal limit of alcohol in his system. As well he is a prohibited driver due to a previous impaired driving conviction.

A 37-year-old Cambridge male is charged with impaired driving and driving while prohibited. His driver’s licence was suspended for 90 days and his vehicle was impounded for 45 days. He will appear in a Guelph court May 16.
