Lambton OPP nabbed a pair of alleged impaired drivers last week, including one suspect that led police on a foot chase.

On Sunday at around 11 a.m., officers responded to a person displaying signs of intoxication at a Lambton Shores address.

Police said when they arrived a man was seen operating a vehicle before fleeing on foot.

Officers were able to apprehend the suspect and take him back to the OPP detachment where two breath samples were provided.

A 53-year-old man from Forest is charged.

The OPP also charged a 27-year-old Plympton-Wyoming man for allegedly blowing over twice the legal limit following a traffic stop Saturday night.

Police were on general patrol on Main Street at around 9 p.m. when they noticed a traffic infraction.

Both men have court dates this fall.
