An 18-year-old Heatherton man was charged with impaired driving by drugs when he was picked up on Maple Street in Stephenville Crossing early Saturday morning.
RCMP Cpl. John Butler said two officers out on patrol noticed a car parked on that street idling at 12:30 a.m. and when they approached the vehicle they smelled marijuana. Police then conducted a drug test on the driver of the car, which he allegedly failed.
He was charged with impaired care and control of a vehicle and with possession of less than 30 grams of marijuana.
