Teen facing impaired charged after traffic stop in Midland


An underaged teen faces impaired driving charges after police say he was clocked traveling more than 50 km/hr over the posted limit early Saturday morning in Midland.

According to police, officers with the Southern Georgian Bay OPP received a “driving complaint” from the community involving a pick-up truck in the area of ​​Heritage Drive and Jones Road.

Police arrived on scene around 1:35 am and “noted the speed of an eastbound pick-up truck on Heritage Drive, made the stop and spoke with the driver entering into an impaired driver investigation.”

Following the investigation, police laid several charges against the 18-year-old Tay Township man including operation while impaired, driving a motor vehicle with liquor readily available, and race a motor vehicle.

The novice-licensed driver has since been released and is expected to appear in an Ontario court later this month.
