Man Refuses To Provide Breath Sample Charged

A 35-year-old Lindsay man is facing a criminal charge after he refused to submit to a breathalyzer after being stopped by Police early Friday morning.

At 2:41 a.m. on Friday, May 12th, 2017 a Kawartha Lakes Police officer had occasion to stop a blue Dodge Caravan on St. Paul Street in Lindsay. When the officer spoke with the driver, they had reason to believe the driver had been drinking and requested they submit to a roadside breathalyzer. The driver registered a fail on the roadside device and was transported to Kawartha Lakes Police where it was requested he provide further samples of his breath, which he refused to do.

35-year-old Thomas Watson of Lindsay was charged with Refusing To Provide a Breath Sample. He will appear in the Lindsay, Ontario Court of Justice on Thursday, June 15th, 2017. Mr Watsons’ licence has been suspended for 90 days, and the vehicle he was operating has been impounded for seven days.
