Around 4:05 p.m. on November 16, 2021, we received information regarding a possible impaired driver. The driver appeared to be passed out at the wheel while at the intersection of Notre Dame Avenue at Kathleen Street. The driver then began driving the vehicle up Notre Dame Avenue almost striking several other cars on the roadway before turning onto King Street. Once on King Street the driver proceeded to Nolin Street where he made two u-turns before ending up in the parking lot of a business.

Patrol Officers arrived in the area and began speaking with the driver who showed signs of impairment. The Officer could see drug paraphernalia inside the vehicle specifically on the front seats.

The Officers told the man that he was under arrest for Impaired Driving and upon searching the man, the Officer located 30 grams of what is believed to be Cocaine and several capsules that are believed to be Hydromorph leading to the additional charges of Possession of a Controlled Substance x2.
