During the very early hours on Sunday November 26th, as a result of suspicious driving behavior, a Shelburne Police officer stopped and investigated the driver of a pick-up truck, shortly after leaving a local bar.
A roadside investigation ensued, which resulted in the driver being arrested for impaired operation of a motor vehicle.
The driver was returned to the Shelburne Police Station for breath tests, which indicated he had more than double the legal limit of alcohol in his system.
As a result, 21 year old D. J. Austin Moffatt of Dundalk has been charged with Driving While Ability Impaired, Driving with Over 80mgs of Alcohol in Blood, Having Care and Control of a Motor Vehicle with Open Container of Alcohol, and Fail to Have Insurance Card.
The accused was released on a Promise to Appear with a first appearance court date in early December to answer to the allegations.
