RCMP pulled over an impaired driver in Whitehorse this weekend who they say had a blood-alcohol level of more than two and a half times the legal limit.
On Sunday at approximately 10:10 p.m. police received a call from a concerned citizen reporting a suspected impaired driver in a white Dodge Ram 1500 pickup truck going north on Fourth Avenue towards Two Mile Hill.
“A few minutes later police located a vehicle fitting that description on Fourth Avenue between Chilkoot Way and Second Avenue,” police said in a statement.
According to police, the 39-year-old provided samples of his breath that came back over two-and-a-half times the legal limit.
He has since been charged with impaired driving and impaired driving over .08 percent. His vehicle has been impounded.
His name is not being released.
