NORTH DUNDAS — A vehicle speeding on County Rd. 43 drew the attention of an SD&G OPP officer who subsequently determined the motorist to be impaired and disqualified from driving as a result of previous incidents.
The officer pulled the vehicle over Feb. 28, around 12:30 a.m., and wound up arresting the driver.
According to police, Christopher Beattie, 32, of North Dundas is charged with: Driving a Motor Vehicle While Ability Impaired; Driving a Motor Vehicle With More Than 80 Milligrams of Alcohol in Blood; Drive While Disqualified (2 counts); and Driving While Suspended (Highway Traffic Act).
The accused was released and scheduled to appear at the Ontario Court of Justice in Morrisburg on April 4.

NORTH GLENGARRY — A 30-year-old woman instantly lost the vehicle she was driving and her driver’s licence for seven days after an OPP officer clocked her at 132/km in an 80 km/h zone.
Under Ontario’s stunt driving law, being 50 km/h or more above the posted limit triggered the extra on-the-spot penalties for the North Glengarry resident — a week in the impound yard for the vehicle and the seizure of her licence for the same period of time.
The officer with the OPP’s Highway Safety Division caught the Feb. 27 infraction at 8:52 a.m. on County Rd. 20.
