Bracebridge OPP arrested a second driver in as many days, for impaired after observing some very poor driving on Taylor Road in Bracebridge early Sunday morning.

Police say around 3 am, officers were patrolling the Manitoba Street and Taylor Road area when a motorist was observed driving partially in the wrong lane. Police followed the vehicle briefly and observed it swerving badly. When the vehicle came to a complete stop at a green light, the officers stopped it. Speaking with the driver of the vehicle, officers quickly deduced not only that he was impaired, but also a G1 novice driver.

Charged with Impaired Operation, Operation over .80, G1 Driver with Blood/Alcohol above zero, G1 Driver Unaccompanied by Qualified Driver and G1 Driver Operating at Unlawful Hour is 22 year old Dylan Bannerman of Bracebridge.

The accused will appear in a Bracebridge  court on February 12th 2019 to answer to the charge.
