Three DUI Charges in Three Days

South Simcoe's Week is Not Off To a Good Start

Three impaired driving arrests for South Simcoe Police in as many days.

A 37-year-old Victoria Harbour man was the week’s first arrest, around 5:00 Monday afternoon; Police arrived to the scene of a rear-end crash in Innisfil, with no injuries reported. While interviewing one driver, police say the tell-tale scent of cannabis was detected. The driver, after facing further tests at the stationhouse, has been charged.

A call of an erratic driver Tuesday morning just after midnight brought police out to Yonge St. at Highway 89. An officer pulled over the vehicle in question and says they could smell booze on the driver’s breath. A 42-year-old Innisfil man was arrested after police say he failed a breath test.

That brings us to Wednesday morning around 1:30, where police say they came across a vehicle in a Bradford parking lot. In speaking to the driver, officers claim to have spied signs of impairment. A 56-year-old man was charged with not only Impaired Driving, but also with being in possession of what police think is heroin.
