On Sunday January 21, 2018 at 240am while on patrol a Shelburne police officer noticed suspicious behaviour that drew their attention to a vehicle. The officer conducted a traffic stop and after speaking with the female driver the officer became suspicious that the woman had consumed alcohol. Consequently, the officer preformed a roadside test for alcohol, which the woman failed. The woman also failed further tests at the Shelburne police station. As a result, Brandy Harris of Shelburne was charged with operation of a motor vehicle with more than 80mgs of alcohol. A court date has been set for early February in Orangeville for Harris to answer to her charge.
Impaired driving continues to be a concern on Ontario’s roadways. The Shelburne Police Service reminds everyone that if you drink, don’t drive. If you drink alcohol please make plans to have a designated driver, call a cab or stay over.
