Holyrood RCMP charged the driver of a semi truck last night with having a blood alcohol count three and a half times more than the legal limit.
Police were tipped off about the driver by a concerned citizen, who called to complain about an erratic driver on the Trans Canada Highway near Butterpot Park.
The RCMP described the suspect as a 37-year-old “professional” truck driver from St. John’s.
His first court appearance is scheduled for the end of January.
Holyrood RCMP would like to commend the public for its assistance in this case.
