A member of Nottawasaga OPP’s bike patrol unit pulled an unsafe driver off the road in Alliston over the weekend.
The officer was patrolling Beattie Avenue on Saturday, Aug. 11 around 8:30 p.m. when he came across a vehicle driving erratically.
The vehicle reversed and veered side to side, almost hitting an oncoming vehicle.
The driver, a 27-year-old New Tecumseth man, was stopped and arrested.
He was charged with driving a vehicle with an open container of liquor, being a novice driver with a blood-alcohol level above zero, driving without a permit and careless driving.
The man was also issued a three-day licence suspension.
