Hits stop sign, tries to flee

A heavy police presence on Old Kamloops Road in Vernon was due to a drunk driver running into a stop sign and resisting arrest Sunday night.

Const. Chris Terleksi of the Vernon RCMP said Sunday around 9:30 p.m., officers responded to a report of an impaired driver who had collided with a stop sign on Agassiz Road.

“The frontline officer located the driver who attempted to leave the scene,” Terleski said in an email. “The man initially attempted to resist but was safely taken into custody.”

Terleski says the 46-year-old Vernon man failed a roadside breath test. As a result, he was given an immediate 90-day roadside ban and his vehicle was impounded for 30 days.
