Snowmobiler Registers Warn on Alcohol Screening Device – Snowmobile Towed

At approximately 11:00 p.m. on Thursday, Feb. 2, Owen Sound Police received a report that the driver of a snowmobile had fallen off of his sled in the area of 10th Street East adjacent to the Julie McArthur Recreation Center.

Upon arrival, police identified the snowmobile operator and determined that he was not injured as a result of the incident.

An odour of alcohol was detected by the responding officer and a roadside alcohol screening test was subsequently administered.

The result of the screening test revealed that the driver was in the warn range meaning he was subject to an automatic three-day suspension of his driver’s license.

The snowmobile was towed from the scene based on the driver’s inability to continue to operate it that night.
