A driver from Loyalist Township is facing charges after officers of the Lennox and Addington (L&A) County Detachment of the Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) investigated a report of a vehicle stuck in a ditch.

According to a release from the OPP, on Monday, Aug. 7, 2023, at approximately 10:45 p.m., L&A OPP received a call about a vehicle stuck in the ditch by the driveway of a residence on Millhaven Road in Loyalist Township.

“Officers located the vehicle and driver and determined that the male driver of the vehicle was showing signs of impairment and an Approved Screening Device (ASD) was administered. The driver was subsequently arrested and transported back to the detachment for further testing,” the OPP said.

As a result of this investigation, L&A County OPP has charged Robert Jeffrey, age 62, of Loyalist Township, with:

  • Operating a motor vehicle while impaired with a blood alcohol concentration over the legal limit
  • Operating a motor vehicle while impaired by alcohol/drugs

Jeffrey was released on an undertaking and is scheduled to appear at the Ontario Court of Justice in Greater Napanee later this month. The accused’s licence was suspended for 90 days, and the vehicle was impounded for seven days.
