A 21-year-old Cornwall man has been charged with impaired driving after an incident in Charlottetown early Sunday.

A spokesman for Charlottetown Police Services said officers were conducting foot patrols Sunday about 12:15 a.m. when they were informed by a passerby that a vehicle had struck another parked vehicle and was currently parked.

Police walked to the area in question and determined the driver, who was still sitting in vehicle, was impaired.

The accused had a blood alcohol level twice the legal limit.

He will be appearing in provincial court at a later date.

 Charlottetown Police Services encourage the public to report any instances of impaired driving by calling 9-1-1.
