Mississauga Man Arrested For Driving Malfunctioning Vehicle While Impaired
A Mississauga man is facing charges after driving with over twice the legal limit of alcohol in his system.
On Wednesday, April 19 at approximately 6:10 a.m., officers from the Caledon Detachment of the OPP received calls regarding an erratic driver traveling southbound on Highway 10 in a red Ford Focus.
When officers stopped the vehicle, they discovered that the front driver’s side tire was half off the rim, causing sparks and debris to fly onto the highway.
Upon realizing that the driver was allegedly impaired, the officer made an arrest.
Now, 38-year-old Mississauga man Brady James Lawrence Lechlitner has been charged with driving while impaired, driving with more than 80 mgs. of alcohol in his blood and dangerous operation of a motor vehicle.
His driver's licence has been suspended for 90 days and his vehicle was impounded.
He will appear in court on May 4.
