A 46-year-old man was arrested and charged with impaired driving and operation of a motor vehicle while exceeding the legal blood-alcohol limit, this after police stopped a vehicle at 10 p.m. on the Conception Bay Highway in Conception Bay South.

Just over one hour later, police stopped a vehicle on Topsail Road in Mount Pearl. A 29-year-old man was charged with breaching a court order and driving while suspended.

Shortly after midnight, RNC officers stopped a vehicle on Pitts Memorial Drive in St. John’s and arrested a 26-year-old man. He was charged with impaired driving and operation of a motor vehicle while exceeding the legal blood-alcohol limit.

Another vehicle was stopped at approximately 2:30 a.m., this time on Mount Carson Avenue in Mount Pearl. A 37-year-old woman was charged with driving while suspended and driving without insurance. Police seized the vehicle.

Police stopped another vehicle in Mount Pearl one hour later on Old Placentia Road and subsequently charged a 27-year-old man with impaired driving and operation of a motor vehicle while exceeding the legal blood-alcohol limit.

A few minutes later at 3:50 a.m., officers stopped a vehicle on Kenmount Road in St. John’s. A 33-year-old woman was charged with impaired driving and operation of a motor vehicle while exceeding the legal blood-alcohol limit.

In almost all instances, the accused was released with a promise made to appear in court at a later date. However, the 29-year-old man accused of breaching a court order remained in custody overnight and was scheduled to appear in Weekend and Statutory Holidays Court Saturday morning.
