Fresh fallen snow and some people just can't resist the urge to get out their snowmobiles, but one man found out early this morning that it's illegal to snowmobile on a city street.

A 24-year-old man had his snowmobile impounded by police early this morning after driving it in downtown St. John’s.

The Royal Newfoundland Constabulary says around 2 :10 a.m., officers arrested the man snowmobiling on Water Street.

He was issued a seven-day driving suspension and his snowmobile was impounded.
