A road stop check at 10:42 p.m. yielded a person driving over the legal limit for blood alcohol with Grand Forks RCMP issuing an immediate 90-day roadside prohibition.

“A 57-year-old male from Edmonton blew on the alcohol sensing device and blew a fail, unfortunately,” said the detachment’s Staff Sgt. Jim Harrison.
