A 50-year-old man whose breathalyzer readings were more than 2.5 times the legal limit was sentenced recently to seven days in jail.

Kenneth J. MacNeill appeared before Chief Judge Nancy Orr in provincial court in Charlottetown where he pleaded guilty to failing the breathalyzer.

The court heard that on Aug. 23 the RCMP found MacNeill in a truck on the side of the road after they responded to a call about a possible impaired driver.

MacNeill must also pay a $1,500 fine and a $450 victim surcharge.

He is banned from driving for one year.
