GLENGARRY — The SD&G OPP intercepted a 19-year-old North Glengarry male travelling 143 km/h in an 80 km/h zone on County Rd. 43.

Stopped March 1 at 11:45 a.m., the teen triggered the threshold for extra penalty under Ontario’s stunt-driving legislation. In addition to charges under the Highway Traffic Act, his driver’s licence was seized for a week, and the vehicle he was driving was similarly impounded.

Stunt-driving sanctions kick in for speeders exceeding the limit by 50 km/h or more.

Four other super speeders broke that barrier on Highway 401 last weekend. Their speeds ranged from 152 km/h to 170 km/h.

Mischief, resisting arrest, refusing breath sample

NORTH STORMONT — A 27-year-old man from South Dundas faces charges of domestic mischief, resisting a peace officer and failing or refusing to provide a breath sample.

The SD&G OPP intercepted the man in a vehicle March 4, as part of their response to a 4:26 p.m. domestic situation in Avonmore.

Their investigation indicated the suspect had previously defaced a vehicle belonging to his ex-spouse in the nearby village.

They also determined him to be under the influence of alcohol, and upon arrest, he became resistant toward officers.

The accused was released and scheduled to appear in Cornwall Court on March 14.

His name has been withheld to protect the identity of the victim.
