MONTAGUE — Two young men are facing drunk driving charges after one vehicle got mired in a ditch while doing doughnuts in Kings County early Sunday morning, and a second vehicle was employed to pull it out.

Kings District RCMP were called to the intersection of Route 17 and Lower Montague Road just before 5:30 a.m. Sunday. A member of the public had called to complain of a dark-coloured pickup truck “doing doughnuts” or driving in tight circles at the intersection.

When they arrived, the Mounties say they observed a pickup truck stuck in the ditch and and driver of a Jeep getting ready to tow it out. The officers said the drivers of both vehicles appeared to be impaired.

Two Lower Montague men, aged 22 and 23, were taken to the Kings District RCMP office where they provided breath samples in excess of the legal limit.

The men were released from custody but they both face drunk driving charges and are scheduled to appear in Georgetown Court on June 26 to answer the charges.

    When it comes to Dumb and Dumber, I always get these two mixed up. Hey were drunk, let's do annoying driving behavior to see of someone calls the police and if that doesn't work lets crash into the ditch.
