Accused drunk driver provides false name to police
An Ohsweken man is facing numerous charges after failing to provide a breath sample during a traffic stop on Rawdon Street by Brantford police at 8:25 p.m. on Saturday.
The 43-year-old gave a false name and was driving a vehicle with plates registered to a different vehicle. Police said he was showing signs of impairment and arrested after refusing to submit to a breathalyzer test.
The man was later charged with failure to provide a breath sample, obstructing police, driving under suspension and other Highway Traffic Act offences.
The accused was released pending a court appearance and the vehicle was impounded for one week.
