On Thursday, September 14, 2017, just after midnight, South Simcoe Police Service officers responded to the intersection of Maplegrove Avenue and Luxury Avenue for a report of a car parked in the middle of the road. Officers found a car blocking the road with its hazard lights on and the driver asleep at the wheel. Knocking and shouting did not rouse the man so officers broke a window to gain access. They were immediately met with a strong odour of alcohol. The man was awoken and arrested for Impaired Driving. He was taken to the station for testing. A 29-year-old Beeton man was held overnight. He was released to a court date later this month, charged with Impaired Driving and Fail To Provide Sample.
