After stopping a speeding driver in Kingston’s east end, an Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) officer found more than one reason to arrest and charge the South Frontenac man.

On Saturday, May 18, 2019, an officer from the Frontenac detachment of the OPP was conducting speed enforcement on Highway 15 near McFarlane Road. Shortly before 11:30 p.m., the officer stopped a vehicle that was travelling 45 km an hour over the speed limit.

As a result of the ensuing investigation, the officer found reason to arrest and charge the accused driver, Matthew McCutheon-Sherman, a 24, with impaired driving, having over 80 mg of alcohol in his blood while operating a motor vehicle, speeding, and driving without insurance.

McCutheon-Sherman’s driver’s licence was suspended for 90 days, and his vehicle was towed and impounded for seven days. He was released on a promise to appear in the Ontario Court of Justice in Kingston at a later date.
