A 34-year-old Aurora man is facing impaired driving and drug possession charges after police responded to a call about an erratic driver on the Hwy. 401 in Chatham-Kent.

OPP say officers located the vehicle parked on the shoulder of the eastbound lanes of the highway near Kent Bridge Rd. late Sunday night.

While officers were speaking with the driver, they determined he had been drinking alcohol and also found some marijuana in the vehicle.

Further testing indicated that the man’s blood alcohol content was over the legal limit.
