GREEN Arrested For Impaired Driving In Brussels

(HURON EAST, ON) – A Morris-Turnberry resident is facing a charge of Blood Alcohol Concentration – 80 Plus following a traffic stop conducted by members of the Huron County Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) Detachment last week.

On Thursday, January 21, 2021 at approximately 3:15 p.m. Huron OPP members received a complaint about a possible impaired driver operating a pickup truck. Officers immediately began patrolling for the suspect vehicle and less than 20 minutes later officers located and stopped the vehicle in Brussels.

A roadside screening device was used and the driver registered a fail. As a result he was placed under arrest and was transported to the Huron OPP Detachment for breath tests. The driver supplied two samples of his breath to the qualified Intoxilizer Technician and both tests were found to be over the legal limit. 

Kevin GREEN, 54 years of age from Morris-Turnberry has been charged with Operation While Impaired – Blood Alcohol Concentration – 80 Plus. He has since been released from custody with a court date scheduled for March 15, 2021 at the Ontario Court of Justice – Goderich.

His motor vehicle was towed and impounded and his licence has been suspended for an automatic 90 days.
