Police called to scene on Chestnut street Wednesday evening

A woman found slumped over the steering wheel of a parked car is facing charges of having care and control of a vehicle while impaired by a drug.

Charlottetown Police Services received the complaint Wednesday evening about the incident on Cumberland Street, said a report issued by the department Thursday.

Officers noted the woman in the car seemed impaired, but not by alcohol, an observation confirmed by an officer known as a drug recognition expert who came to the scene.

"The accused person, a 26-year-old female resident of Stratford, will be appearing in provincial court at a later date," said the report.

    ATTENTION PEOPLE CHARGED WITH DRUG IMPAIRED DRIVING: The charges won't stick if you fight them! The court has not set out what amount of drugs in your system warrant impairment, and what amount is below impairment - e.g. alcohol is .05 or .08. This whole drug recognition "expert" business is odious as heck; they aren't even doing it in the other provinces but are using PEI as a testing grounds - low hanging fruit.

The Guardian always tells its readers that liquor is involved in an impaired driver that was caught, The reader paying for the newspaper should be able to know what the person was on, It's APART OF THE ARTICLE!!
