Road Rage Leads To Impaired Driving Charges

A Lakeshore man is facing impaired driving charges after an incident of road rage.

On March 9, the Ontario Provincial Police were called to a driving complaint on Hwy. 401 in Lakeshore. The caller told police they were being followed by another vehicle that was tailgating and being driven erratically. Frequent attempts over several kilometres to evade the suspect were reportedly unsuccessful.

The two vehicles left the highway at the St. Joachim exit. Police stopped the vehicle on County Rd. 42 near County Rd. 27 in Lakeshore.

The 54-year-old male driver allegedly showed signs of impairment and was arrested. He has been charged with impaired driving and refusal to provide a breath sample.

His vehicle has been impounded and driver’s licence suspended.
