Three Prince County individuals have been charged with impaired driving from incidents this weekend, including one man who provided breath samples three times more than legal limit.

West Prince officers arrested a 29-year-old Summerside man after responding to a single vehicle collision in Tignish at approximately 1:54 a.m. Sunday.

The male was transported to the West Prince Detachment where he provided two breath samples that were more than three times the legal limit.

He is scheduled to appear in Summerside provincial court on April 11.

Also on Sunday, officers in Miscouche performed a vehicle stop at approximately 1:35 a.m.

As a result of the vehicle stop, a 49-year-old St. Nicholas male was arrested for impaired driving.

Officers said breath samples taken from the individual were more than double the legal limit.

The man will appear in Summerside provincial court on April 18.

East Prince officers had also responded to a public complaint of a possibly impaired driver shortly before midnight in Miscouche Friday.

After investigation, a 44-year-old Birch Hill male was arrested for impaired operation of a motor vehicle.

Police said the man refused the breathalyzer.

He will also appear in Summerside provincial court on April 18 to face charges of impaired driving and refusal of a breath demand.

    If someone who is a judge gets caught drinking and driving do they get to keep their job.

    I guess I have good reason not to want to drive on the roads after 10 p.m., but then again, drunk drivers can be on the roads in the middle of the day as we have seen! Guess jail time, fines and suspensions aren't enough of a deterrent for these losers! There seems to be more cases reported all the time instead of less!
