After receiving information from the public, officers from the Frontenac detachment of the Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) arrested a man who was driving a float in the Sydenham Santa Claus parade while impaired.
Police arrested the suspect at the intersection of George Street and Wheatly Street in Sydenham at 10:32 a.m. As a result of the ensuing investigation, Peter John Trousdale, 37, of Sydenham was charged with having over 80 mg of alcohol in his blood while operating a motor vehicle.
Trousdale was released on a promise to appear in the Ontario Court of Justice in Kingston on Thursday, Dec. 13, 2018.
NOTE: The original version of this police brief named the suspect as ‘John Peter Trousdale’ as opposed to the correct name, Peter John Trousdale. Initially, the OPP incorrectly identified the man.
