A tipster reported that a vehicle was in the ditch and that the driver was passed out. After speaking with the driver, officers determined she had consumed alcohol. An Approved Screening Device was administered that resulted in a "fail" and the driver was subsequently arrested.

  • Operation while impaired - Blood Alcohol Concentration (80 plus)

Wagner is scheduled to appear before the Ontario Court of Justice in Gore Bay on June 22.
