Four men are facing impaired driving and other charges after four separate incidents in Kings County over the weekend.

Officers were on ATV patrol on South Street in Berwick around 4:40 p.m. Saturday when the driver of an ATV was arrested after failing to stop for officers.

RCMP say a 23-year-old man is facing three charges, including impaired driving and flight from police.

In the second incident, officers responded around 8:10 p.m. Sunday to a report of a possible impaired driver on Marshall Road in Kingston who had side swiped another car and fled.

The vehicle was located and the driver was arrested, taken to Kingston Detachment where he blew three times the legal limit, and was released once sober.

Police say a 19-year-old man is facing five charges including impaired driving and fail to remain at an accident.

Officers were also called at 12:20 a.m. Sunday about a possible impaired driver who almost hit other cars on Commercial Street in New Minas.

RCMP say the driver did not stop for them right away, and was eventually arrested, taken to New Minas Detachment for breath samples and later released.

Police say a 50-year-old man is facing impaired driving charges.

In the final incident, officers responded at 2:25 a.m. Tuesday to a call of a possible impaired driver who was swerving on Highway 101 in Wolfville Ridge.

Police say the driver did not immediately stop when requested and was arrested after pulling into a driveway, before being taken to detachment for breath samples and later released.

RCMP say a 56-year-old man is facing charges including impaired driving and refusal of the breath demand.

All four men are scheduled to appear in court in December.
