A P.E.I. man who was caught driving with a blood alcohol level more than three times the legal limit was sentenced recently to 10 days in jail.

Colin Gordon Rodd, 38, appeared before Judge Jeff Lantz in provincial court in Charlottetown where he pleaded guilty to drunk driving.

The court heard that on May 24, Charlottetown police arrested Rodd after a report about a possible impaired driver.

Rodd, who had a prior drunk driving conviction in 2002, addressed the court before hearing his sentence and said he was remorseful.

“I regret it every day,” he said.

Along with the jail time, Rodd must pay a $1,500 fine and a $450 victim surcharge.

He was also banned from driving for one year.
