The Estevan Police Service had a busy night last night dealing with a number of suspected impaired drivers including one that resulted in assault charges.
"Police actually received a couple different calls through the Report Impaired Drivers line," shared Sgt Tyler McMillan. "One vehicle was located and it was unfounded, the driver was not impaired."
She was spoken to about her driving actions and sent on her way.
"The second one, the plate, and description of the subject was given but he was not located. We'll follow up and speak to him in regards to that."
Police were also called to a downtown parking lot just after 8 PM where a woman was trying to stop two people suspected of impaired driving.
"We appreciate that. We know there's a little risk to that and we don't encourage it but she was trying to do her duty to stop them. When she was calling police and reporting that, one of the subjects threw an object at her. He and his friend were located a couple blocks away in an alley. One male was arrested for assault. We have enough reasonable grounds to believe that what he did was an assault."
He was arrested and lodged in cells until sober. He will be released later with a future court date.
But their night wasn't done yet.
"Just after midnight, stopped a vehicle that was driving in the area. The police officer making the stop was checking the sobriety of the driver, making sure the driver was not impaired. He was found to be on conditions stemming from charges out of the Regina Police Service. He has some serious charges out of there that he's dealing with."
His conditions include abiding by a curfew and staying in his residence in Regina.
"He is a little outside his conditions on that one and he was arrested and he's being held here in custody until he can be released before a Justice of the Peace and sent back to Regina."
McMillan added that he appreciated all the calls from the public on the watch for suspected impaired drivers.
