An Owen Sound man faces impaired driving charges after allegedly losing control of his vehicle and going through a cemetery.
Owen Sound police said they responded to the incident shortly after 6:15 p.m. Tuesday.
When officers arrived, they said they found a silver Nissan Altima stuck on top of a headstone at Greenwood Cemetery with both front wheels off the ground.
Police said they seized open containers of alcohol from the man’s car.
The driver provided a breath sample, which police said showed his blood-alcohol level was nearly double the legal limit.
He faces charges of impaired driving, operating a vehicle with an excess blood alcohol level, and operating a vehicle without insurance.
His license was suspended for 90 days, and his vehicle was impounded.
Police say no one was injured.
The vehicle and headstone sustained substantial damage.
