Caledon OPP Charges Two Drivers With Impaired Operation

Officers from the Caledon Detachment of the Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) have charged two individuals with impaired operation.

On August 24, 2022, at approximately 8:09 p.m., Caledon OPP was dispatched to the area of Highway 10 near County Road 109 for a traffic complaint called in from a concerned motorist over the way a vehicle was being operated. An officer located the vehicle and conducted a traffic stop. Given all observations made by the officer, the driver was arrested for impaired driving and transported to the Caledon OPP detachment where breath tests were conducted.

As a result of the investigation, Douglas LAFRAMBOISE, 63, of L’Ange-Gardien Quebec, was charged with:

• Operation while impaired – alcohol

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

Two hours later, at approximately 10:13 p.m. on the same day, Caledon OPP responded to a two-vehicle collision on Mayfield Road near Innis Lake Road in the Town of Caledon. No injuries were reported. During the investigation, the officer suspected that the abilities of one driver were impaired. A breath sample into an Approved Screening Device (ASD) was demanded. As a result, the driver was arrested for impaired operation and transported to the Caledon OPP detachment where further breath tests were conducted.

Consequently, Harmandeep CHANNI, 27, of Mississauga, was charged with:

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

Both vehicles from the two incidents were impounded for seven days, and the driver’s licences were suspended for a period of 90 days. The two accused are scheduled to appear at the Ontario Court of Justice in Orangeville on November 3, 2022, to answer to the charges.

The OPP remains committed to taking alcohol/drug-impaired drivers off our roads through enforcement and public education. Drivers are reminded that no amount of alcohol or drugs in your system is safe when driving. If you suspect that someone is driving while impaired, it is important to call 9-1-1 to report it. Driving under the influence of either alcohol or drugs is a criminal offence.

Caledon OPP would like to thank the member of the public who contacted police to report the possible impaired drivers. It resulted in an arrest and contributed to making our roads safer.
