The driver of a transport truck traveling in the wrong lane on the Trans-Canada Highway early this morning provided breath samples three times the legal limit when apprehended by RCMP officers.

Just before 2 a.m., Royal Canadian Mounted Police officers from the Holyrood detachment were alerted to the vehicle traveling west in the eastbound lane of the TCH.

After stopping the vehicle, police identified the 43-year-old driver was already suspended from driving. He was arrested for impaired operation of the motor vehicle.

The accused was released and is scheduled to appear in provincial court in February.
