On the 14th of July at 11:24 p.m., at Christina Lake there was a report of impaired driving.

“A constable received a complaint of an individual being cut off from being served alcoholic beverages at the Crow and Bear Pub,” said Grand Forks RCMP’s Staff Sgt. Jim Harrison.

“Subsequently, the officer located a local Grand Forks male, who was driving (with a passenger), displaying severe signs of impairment.”

An alcohol screening device was used, the driver registered a fail and was handed a 90-day immediate roadside prohibition and the vehicle was impounded – the vehicle belonged to the passenger, who was also issued a ticket for driving contrary to restrictions.

“The restriction he had was he had to have an interlock device on his vehicle, so obviously he had a previous record for this type of thing. The person was a 30-year-old Grand Forks male,” Harrison said.
