PRIMROSE — A 19-year-old Murray River man faces impaired driving charges after being arrested early on New Year’s day.

At about 1:30 .m., Kings District RCMP stopped a vehicle headed south on Route 4 in Primrose for a traffic infraction. 

A subsequent investigation led to the driver being detained for an impaired driving investigation. 

The Murray River man was taken to the Montague RCMP detachment and provided two samples of his breath, which were both over the legal limit. 

The man was released from custody and will appear in provincial court in Georgetown at a later date.

RCMP are reminding the travelling public about the numerous significant negative consequences that may result of an impaired driving investigation, and encourage those who decide to consume alcohol to pre-plan a safe route home with a sober person.

    interesting that the 19 year old who didn't cause an accident is charged but where is the article about that 50 something man who was found slumped behind his wheel in cornwall about 2 months ago. why isn't he being charged? he was drunk and now he'll do it again because he is special Anyone caught impaired behind the wheel should be charged. No matter who they apparently Know.

    just think 19 years old and he is a drunk i hope his family and ghiz is happy. the kids next move will be helping dig a hole for the person he murders while drunk. and the sad part is the law is on his side not the victim. but i guess wes likes this getting them hooked on booze at a young age more profit and fine money.
