Two residents have upcoming court dates to answer to impaired driving charges laid in Huntsville. The OPP was called on Thursday night about a driver who had been drinking. Officers found the pickup truck he was driving close to where the call was made. A 49-year-old man is now facing two impaired related charges and has a court date on August 16th.
The second charge was laid around 2:00am on Friday. Officers saw a car idling on Forbes Road, and when they went to check on the driver they allege he had just finished smoking pot in the car. The 22-year-old North Bay man was charged with drug possession, as well as care and control of a car while impaired by drugs. He has a court date next month to answer to the charges.
The OPP says both drivers also had their licenses suspended for 90 days, and their cars were impounded for seven days.
