A local man is facing multiple charges after he was found to be impaired after being pulled over for a traffic stop.
Members of the Leeds County Detachment of the Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) stopped a vehicle on Highway 32 in Leeds-Lansdowne Township. The ensuing investigation led to the driver, Michael Rowe, 53, of Kingston being arrested for impaired driving, and driving with more than 80 mg of alcohol in his blood. He also faces charges under the Highway Traffic Act, and the Compulsory Automobile Insurance Act.
Rowe is scheduled to appear in the Ontario Court of Justice in Brockville at a future date to answer to the charges.
