A 17-year-old Bothwell native is facing impaired driving charges following a vehicle rollover near Reeces Corners Sunday morning.

Police administered a roadside screening device after it became apparent that the driver had consumed an alcoholic beverage. The driver was then arrested and transported back to an OPP detachment and provided two breath samples over the legal limit.

The accused is charged with driving with a blood alcohol concentration of 80 plus and now has a court date set for September 15.
