Saguenay: he drives drunk and in the wrong direction with his children

UPDATE DAY

A 40-year-old man was arrested on Saturday evening after driving his vehicle in the wrong direction, in Saguenay, while he was drunk and accompanied by his two young children.  

Shortly before 11 p.m., two patrol officers from the Saguenay Police Department (SPS) noticed the particular behavior of the individual who was traveling in the opposite direction.

The latter was intercepted on rue Saint-Louis, in Jonquière. Immediately, officers found that he was exhibiting symptoms of impaired abilities. Taken back to the police station, he “blew” more than twice the legal blood alcohol limit.

“What is special about this story is that there were two young children in the vehicle”, explains Lieutenant Stéphane Pellerin, of the SPS.

The driver's license was already suspended and his car was not registered.  

The driver was therefore arrested, a subsequent suspension of his license was added and his car was seized for a period of 30 days.

Authorities also took care for the children of man. A report to the Department of Youth Protection (DPJ) has been made.
