Two off-duty police officers and an off-duty auxiliary police constable made an arrest at a local resort after a Liverpool man was found unconscious in a still moving vehicle.
At around noon on August 2, Queens District RCMP received complaints of a hit and run as well as of a possible impaired driver, according to a press release from Nova Scotia RCMP.
A green Chevy Cavalier was driving erratically west bound on Highway 3 near Hunt's Point when the vehicle crossed the centre line, sideswiping an oncoming vehicle and causing minor damage.
The vehicle continued to an unnamed resort where off-duty officers from the RCMP and the Waterloo Regional Police Service, as well as an auxiliary constable from the Toronto Police Services, spotted a driver who appeared unconscious in a still moving vehicle. The officers managed to put the vehicle in park and arrested the driver.
The 46-year-old Liverpool man has been charged with impaired operation of a motor vehicle, operating a motor vehicle with a blood alcohol content in excess of 80 per cent mg, failing to remain at the scene of a collision, driving with a revoked licence and driving without insurance.
He will appear in Bridgewater Provincial Court on September 13 at 9:30 a.m.
The investigation is ongoing.
