P.E.I. man jailed after erratic driving while drunk


A P.E.I. man who forced several vehicles off the road while driving drunk was sentenced recently to three days in jail.

Robert Joseph Doyle, 32, appeared before Chief Judge Nancy Orr in provincial court in Charlottetown where he pleaded guilty to failing the breathalyzer.

The court heard that on Nov. 11 at around 11:45 a.m. the police responded to a call about a swerving truck that forced several vehicles off the road.

Doyle was parked at the Subway in Stratford when the police found him and he told them he had been drinking heavily the night before.

He later provided breathalyzer samples that were about twice the legal limit.

Along with the jail time, Doyle is banned from driving for one year
