While patrolling the streets just before 4am on Sunday February 12th, a Shelburne Police officer located a vehicle crashed into a snowbank on Cedar Street. The registered owner of the car was the lone occupant found in the driver’s seat. The vehicle suffered significant damage, but thankfully the male had only minor injuries.
The investigation at the scene had the officers believe the male was intoxicated by alcohol and was arrested for impaired care and control of a motor vehicle.
The driver provided breath samples at the police station. The results of those breath samples indicate the male had over 270mg of alcohol per 100ml of blood. That is more than triple the legal limit.
As a result, 18 year old Kayden MORLEY of Melanchthon was charged with Care and Control While Impaired, and Care and Control Over 80. His driver’s licence was suspended for 90 days and the vehicle impounded for 7 days.
The accused has a first appearance court date in late February to answer to the allegations.
