Pizza delivery driver charged for drunk driving, ‘nearly’ striking OPP officer with vehicle

A pizza delivery driver will be on the naughty list this year after he was arrested on drunk driving charges and nearly collided with a police officer near Hawkesbury, Ont.

Ontario Provincial Police spokesperson Aaron Miller told CTV News the 33-year-old male was driving on County Road 17 just before 7 p.m. on Dec. 15.

OPP said on social media that the driver ‘nearly collided’ with a Hawkesbury OPP officer on patrol and subsequently recorded a blood alcohol concentration (BAC) just under four times the legal drinking limit.

Police did not provide more details and the driver was not named.

The legal limit for a fully licenced driver in Ontario is set at 0.08 per cent.

A first time impairment charge for all Ontario drivers is an immediate 90-day roadside licence suspension, a seven day vehicle impoundment and a $550 fine.

Hawkesbury is about 100 kilometres east of Ottawa.
