Last night around 11:30 p.m. a concerned citizen reported to police that a woman under the influence of alcohol had just left Wallaceburg’s Westcourt Complex in a grey car with her two young children. An officer on general patrol observed the vehicle and initiated a traffic stop on Dufferin Avenue. Through investigation, the officer suspected the woman had been drinking. She was given several opportunities to provide a suitable sample of her breath into an approved screening device, however she failed to comply.
The 32-year-old Wallaceburg woman was charged with failing to provide a breath sample. She was released with conditions pending a future court date of June 17, 2015. The children were picked up by family members.
