Police needed to swerve to avoid a collision with a motorist who pleaded guilty Monday to failing a breathalyzer on Aug. 10 in Cornwall.
Christopher Stephen Geldert, 38, was sentenced to 23 days in jail to be served on an intermittent basis.
He is prohibited from driving for one year.
Police reported Geldert was slurring and unsteady on his feet after being pulled over.
Geldert told the court that he is not a heavy drinker.
