Kings District RCMP arrested a 68-year-old Belfast man for allegedly driving drunk Tuesday after an officer pulled him over for speeding.

At 9:40 p.m. the officer was on patrol on Route 206 near Bellevue when he saw a vehicle going faster than the speed limit.

The driver was the vehicle’s lone occupant and allegedly showed signs of impairment.

Breath samples at the RCMP detachment in Montague allegedly showed his blood alcohol level was over the legal limit.

The driver has been released from custody and is scheduled to appear in provincial court in Georgetown on July 3 to enter pleas to charges of impaired driving and failing the breathalyzer.

    It's all well and good to report that a drunk driver was pulled over and charged. But why isn't the person named? They would name someone charged with drug trafficking, assault, forcible entry or any number of other crimes. Why don't they publish the names of people who commit this crime? Particulalrly repeat offenders?

      The name gets published in the paper after he goes to court and gets convicted.
