He was also ordered to surrender his driver’s licence, abstain from alcohol and stay away from any establishment that sells alcohol.
Fahey is due back in court Nov. 29.
He was arrested Monday following an incident that happened near the Quidi Vidi Lake area of the capital city.
At 2:25 p.m., RNC patrol services responded to a report that a driver of a car hit a parked vehicle on Lakeview Avenue and took off.
Fahey faces charges of impaired driving, failing the breathalyzer and failing to stop at the scene of an accident for that incident.
It was the second time in less than a week that Fahey was arrested for allegedly driving drunk.
On Tuesday, Fahey was picked up and charged with impaired driving and failing the breathalyzer. He had been released to appear in court later this month.
He will return to court Nov. 29 to face charges in connection with both incidents.
