Members of the Southern Georgian Bay OPP responded to a motorist’s call to the OPP Communication Centre at 10:45 p.m. on Feb. 7 to check on a vehicle in a ditch on Old Fort Road in Tay Township.
Attending officers spoke with the lone male driver. During the investigation, the male allegedly became unco-operative and was transported by the officers to the detachment.
Joseph Gagne, 54, of Tay Township was charged with care or control of a motor vehicle while impaired, refusing to provide a breath sample and assault with intent to resist arrest.
His vehicle was towed from the scene and impounded for seven days, and his driver’s licence was suspended for 90 days. He was released from custody and is to appear in court in Midland at a future date.
