Published on June 22, 2014

RCMP sent a strong message to impaired drivers over the weekend.

Three individuals were arrested and charged for impaired driving Saturday night, which was the first day of summer.

Officers first pulled over a vehicle with a burnt out headlight on Route 236 in Milton Station.

A 26-year-old male driver failed a standard field sobriety test before he was brought to the Maypoint detachment.

The man provided breath samples and submitted to a drug recognition evaluation. He is now facing charges of impaired driving by a combination of alcohol and drugs.

Later that night, RCMP in Stratford pulled over a vehicle on Keppoch Road for driving erratically.

The driver, a 39-year-old man, was arrested after providing breath samples that police said were over the legal limit.

Later in Cornwall, officers responded to an overturned vehicle in the ditch along Ferry Road.

Officers identified and located a male driver at a residence on Ferry Road.

The man was arrested for impaired driving after providing breath samples that were higher than the legal limit.

Police said all three individuals were released and will appear in provincial court at a later date.
