RCMP catch drunk driver in Invermere

As RCMP approached car, they could immediately detect an odour of liquor emanating from inside

RCMP members were on patrol on the streets of Invermere Saturday, September 23rd, when they noted a red Honda Civic travelling toward downtown core with no tail lights illuminated. Wishing to bring the behaviour to the attention of the driver, the RCMP members pulled the car over. As they were approaching the car they could immediately detect an odour of liquor emanating from inside the vehicle. The driver stated he had consumed no alcohol and that the lone passenger was the source of the odour. In order to separate the driver from the odour-filled vehicle, he was asked to speak to the police outside. While outside the driver then admitted that he consumed 2-3 beers prior to getting behind the wheel. Consequently, the driver was demanded to provide samples of his breath into an approved screening device. He provided two samples, both of which resulted in a FAIL reading. Subsequently, his license was seized for 90 days and the vehicle was impounded for 30 days.
