Shelburne Man Charged with Impaired Driving and Dangerous Driving

During the early afternoon on Saturday January 5th, Shelburne Police responded to a public complaint about a car passing through a stop sign at a high rate of speed and then driving over the curb, and stopping on the sidewalk in a residential area. Shelburne Police were able to locate the car and the driver a short while later.  The driver was arrested for Dangerous Driving and Impaired Driving and brought to the police station for alcohol concentration breath tests.  The results of these tests indicated that the driver had triple the legal limit of alcohol in his system. As a result of the investigation, 20 year old Garrett DONEY of Shelburne was charged with Dangerous Operation, Operation While Impaired by Alcohol, Operation While Impaired Blood Alcohol Concentration, and Novice Driver with Blood Alcohol Concentration above Zero. Thankfully no one was injured in this incident.

The accused will be answering to these allegations at the Orangeville Court House in late January.
