A Sarnia man is facing impaired driving charges after police say he nearly hit a cruiser just after midnight Saturday.

Police say a Uniform Patrol officer was on Front St when he watched a vehicle turn off of Wellington St and almost collide with his cruiser. The officer stopped the vehicle and determined the male driver had been drinking.

He was arrested after breath samples showed he was over twice the legal limit.
