Drunken drive from Albany to Charlottetown leads to fine


CHARLOTTETOWN, P.E.I. - A P.E.I. man whose passenger described a drive with him as the scariest of his life was recently fined $1,000 for having care and control of a vehicle while drunk.

Walter George Wilson appeared before Judge John Douglas in provincial court in Charlottetown where he entered a guilty plea.

The court heard that on Sept. 27, Wilson was going from Albany to Charlottetown and was driving erratically.

At one point, Wilson was driving on the wrong side of the road.

After he was reported to the police, they found him in his parked vehicle, and Wilson’s passenger described the drive as the scariest of his life.

Along with the fine, Wilson must pay a $300 victim surcharge and he is banned from driving for one year.
