Kingston Man Charged with Speeding While Impaired

A Kingston man has been accused of driving at twice the speed limit with two-and-a-half times the legal limit of alcohol in his system.

Police arrested the man, 25,  around 11:30 p.m. Monday, after an officer allegedly spotted him driving dangerously at 100 kilometres per hour on Division Street.

Police say the man pulled out of his lane to pass other vehicles, directly into the path of the officer's cruiser, and when the officer turned around and attempted to pursue the vehicle, he lost it.

Officers later found the vehicle and arrested the suspect.

He's charged with numerous offenses including dangerous driving, failing to stop for police and impaired driving.
