A minor motor vehicle accident lead to a drunk driving arrest for a Charing Cross man Saturday.

Chatham-Kent police say early yesterday they responded to a crash that saw a vehicle rear-end another at the corner of Richmond St. and Bloomfield Rd.

There were no injuries, but police did smell alcohol on the breath of the at-fault driver.

After numerous tests a 25-year-old man has been charged with “Over 80.” He’s been released with a future court date.


Chatham-Kent fire officials are still investigating after a late night fire in Chatham.

CK police say the blaze occurred at a residence on Indian Creek Rd. W.

Damage estimates and the cause have yet to be determined.


Chatham-Kent police say a repeat offender is back in custody.

Police say the 36-year-old had a curfew and sign-in responsibilities after being released from court earlier this month.

Police say on Saturday, the suspect was late for his sign in at Chatham-Kent Police Service Headquarters. When he did arrive, officers said if he breached his conditions again he would be arrested.

Officials later observed the man breaching his curfew, riding a bicycle on city streets.

He’s been arrested pending a bail hearing.
