24 Year Old Facing Drunk Driving & Hit And Run Charges – KAUFMAN

(BLUEWATER, ON) – A Drumbo man is facing some driving related charges including Impaired Operation following an investigation conducted by Huron County Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) earlier this month.

On July 11, 2020 at approximately 1:21 a.m. Huron OPP officers received a call from a Bluewater Highway homeowner that reported a suspicious person was at his doorstep requiring assistance.

Police arrived shortly thereafter and located the suspect and his damaged pickup truck. With some further investigation officers were able to determine the suspect had been involved in a crash a few kilometers away where suspect’s pickup truck collided with the guard rail.

While speaking with the driver police noted the accused had consumed some alcohol and was displaying several signs of impairment. As such the driver was placed under arrest for Impaired Operation. He was transported to the Grand Bend OPP Detachment and he provided two samples of his breath to the Intoxilizer Technician. Both of his samples were found to be above the legal limit.

Taylor KAUFMAN, 24 years of age from Drumbo has been charged with Impaired Operation, Impaired Operation – Blood Alcohol Concentration Above Zero, Fail to Remain and Fail to Report Accident.

He has since been released from custody with a court appearance scheduled for November 2, 2020 at the Ontario Court of Justice – Goderich.
