Officers from the Caledon Detachment of the Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) have charged three additional drivers with impaired operation related charges last weekend.

On April 22, 2022, at approximately 2:16 a.m., a concerned motorist contacted the OPP to report a vehicle being operated in a way consistent with impaired driving. The vehicle was observed in the area of Highway 10 and Boston Mills Road and later located by officers in Orangeville. Since the officer suspected that the driver’s abilities were impaired, a demand was made for a breath sample into an Approved Road Screening device.

As a result of the investigation, Justin LABINE, 40, of Orangeville, was charged with:

• Failure or refusal to comply with demand

On the same day at approximately 8:41 a.m., Caledon OPP received an additional traffic complaint in the area of Highway 9 and Airport Road. The vehicle was later located by officers. Based on the officer’s suspicion that the driver’s abilities were impaired, they were asked to provide a breath sample into an Approved Screening Device. As a result, the driver was arrested for impaired operation and transported to an OPP detachment where further breath tests were conducted.

Paul BENTLEY, 65, of Mono, was charged with:

• Operation while impaired – blood alcohol concentration (80 plus)

On April 24, 2022 at approximately 2:06 a.m., Caledon OPP responded to a report of a vehicle that had collided with a parked car in Bolton. Since impaired operation was suspected by the officer, the driver was asked to provide a sample of their breath into an Approved Screening Device. As a result, they were arrested and transported to an OPP detachment where further breath tests were conducted.

Nicole DAWICZEWSKI, 28, of Toronto, was charged with:

• Operation while impaired – alcohol

• Operation while impaired – blood alcohol concentration (80 plus)

The three accused are scheduled to appear at the Ontario Court of Justice in Orangeville on July 7, 2022, to answer to the charges. In addition to having to attend court, the three involved vehicles were impounded for seven days and the driver’s licences were suspended for a period of 90 days.

The OPP relies on the public to report crime. Impaired driving is a crime that should be treated no differently. Caledon OPP would like to thank the two members of the public for reporting the traffic complaints.

If you suspect that someone is driving while impaired by alcohol or drugs, it is important to call 9-1-1 to report it.
