A 20-year old Southwold man faces impaired driving charges after police found him with more than 80 milligrams of alcohol in his system.

As a result of the investigation the 20-year old male driver faces an impaired driving charge and a charge for driving with more than 80 milligrams of alcohol.
He is scheduled to appear in a St. Thomas courtroom on April 18.
