CORNERâ€ˆBROOK A tip from a citizen resulted in an impaired driving charge for a city man early today.
At 12:30 a.m. a citizen contacted the Royal Newfoundland Constabulary to report a possible impaired driver in the area of Beothuck Crescent. The driver had struck a parked vehicle in the area which alerted the citizen, who then called the police.
Upon arrival, officers spoke to the driver, a 67-year-old man from Corner Brook. The man was detained and brought to the RNCâ€ˆheadquarters where a breathalyzer test was administered.
The man was then charged with impaired operation of a motor vehicle and was released to appear in court at a later date.
