(Bradford, ON) On Friday, February 02, 2018, around 11:30 a.m., South Simcoe Police recceived a call from a concerned citizen about a possible impaired driver. The caller described a man passed out inside his vehicle in the parking lot of a plaza located on Holland Street, West, in the Town of Bradford West Gwillimbury. Police arrived and found the described car with a male driver behind the wheel, now awake. While speaking to the driver, the officer noted a strong odour of alcohol, however, he denied having anything to drink on today's date. The officer formed the opinion his ability to drive was impaired by alcohol and asked him to exit the car. While doing so, the officer noticed a beer can in the door of the vehicle.
He was arrested and taken to the South division for testing.
