Impaired Driver Protests


Source: Brandon Police Service Media Release

At about 12:45 AM Saturday morning, a traffic stop resulted in the 42 year-old male driver being issued an Immediate Roadside Prohibition from driving.  Approximately 4 hours later, the same male attended to BPS and began a protest, parading around the front entranceway, outside.  Police spoke with him regularly and he denied offers to take him home.  After about an hour, his speech was making less sense, he was becoming more agitated so he was arrested for his own safety as it appeared he was unable to care for himself in the extreme cold.  He will be released once he is sober enough that it can be done so safely.
