A man who was stopped at a stop sign and arrested for driving drunk has been charged with three counts of dangerous driving in Toronto.
On March 11, the RCMP in Kingston, Ont., issued an arrest warrant for a 51-year-old man who allegedly was driving a white Chevrolet Avalanche at a speed of 55 km/h.
The warrant said the Avalanche was being driven by the man’s brother and had been stolen from his driveway.
Police said the SUV was found abandoned in a driveway, with the front bumper smashed, on Dundas Street West.
It was parked in a ditch and covered in mud.
Police seized a blood alcohol reading of 0.05 per cent, which is more than three times the legal limit of 0,08 per cent.
The Crown alleges the accused also had a blood-alcohol level of 0 at the time of the incident.
The Crown said that’s the highest blood alcohol level in the province.
The arrest warrant was made under section 10 of the Criminal Code.
Police were not immediately available for comment.
The accused is scheduled to appear in court on April 12.
