P.E.I. drunk driver fined after causing disturbance in Tim Hortons parking lot


CHARLOTTETOWN, P.E.I. - A 32-year-old man who was arrested for driving drunk after he caused a disturbance in a Tim Hortons parking lot was recently fined $1,000.

Brody Carl Taylor appeared before Judge John Douglas in provincial court in Charlottetown where he pleaded guilty to drunk driving.

The court heard that on April 29 Charlottetown police were dispatched to the Tim Hortons on Grafton Street after a call about a man causing a disturbance.

Crown attorney Lisa Goulden said surveillance video taken later showed Taylor drive up to a bar and get out of his vehicle.

Taylor spent the night in jail after his arrest.

In court, he apologized to the police officers who dealt with him and said he understood that he wasn’t very co-operative that night.

Along with the fine, Taylor must pay a $300 victim surcharge.

He will be on probation for nine months and is banned from driving for one year.
