SUMMERSIDE - A 22-year old Prince County man was sentenced to three days in jail after pleading guilty in Summerside provincial court to impaired driving.


Adam Brian Getson was stopped by police on Aug. 31 after they received a complaint for another motorist of a possible impaired driver.

The caller told police that they were following a black Grand Am along South Drive and the vehicle was swerving all over the road.

Police spotted the Getson vehicle on Route 2 and observed it cross the centre line of the road and swerve to the right shoulder.

Getson was stopped by police and a breathalyzer demand was made. Getson recorded two readings of 130.

In addition to the jail term, Getson was fined $1,000 and ordered to pay a $150 victim fine surcharge. He is also prohibited from driving for 12 months.

    this is a joke 3 days for being a drunk driver. no wonder we have so many and the government saying there are less drunks on the road is a joke all it means is the police can not be every where. when are we going to have a government with some BACKBONE to make jail term at least 30 days and no weekend crap. and if they lose there jobs good enough for them some one will get he job. but at least with 30 days in jail islanders has one less drunk that can be a murdering drunk.come on ghiz lets hope you grow a pair.
