Impaired Driver Assaults Police
Operation while Impaired leads to officers being Assaulted
On June 21st 2023 at 10:20pm Saugeen Shores Police took a report of a stolen vehicle from Lamont Sports Park. Information was that an intoxicated female had left with the car without permission. At approximately 10:30pm an off-duty officer observed a vehicle circling a neighborhood with no taillights. The vehicle was observed to come back to the area several times.
The off-duty officer contacted Saugeen Shores Police to report the suspicious activity and kept an eye on the vehicle while officers responded.
Upon arrival it was determined that the vehicle had been taken from the Sports Park and the driver was impaired by alcohol. She was removed from the vehicle and placed under arrest.
During the arrest the female punched an officer in the face and attempted to flee on foot. She was taken under control and transported to the Station. While at the station she assaulted two more officers. She eventually provided two suitable samples of breath which both registered over the legal limit of alcohol.
As a result of this investigation a 32-year-old of Bruce County has been charged with Assault a Peace Officer x 3, Resist Peace Officer, Operation while impaired and Operation while impaired (80+). She was released with a future court date.
