Impaired Driver Nabbed During Lunch Hour

Medicine Hat Police arrested the man after an officer conducted a traffic stop on snow and ice covered roads

Medicine Hat Police say a man has been charged with impaired driving during the noon hour.  A Traffic Unit officer arrested the man and took him back for a breathalyzer, another officer conducted the test and a third officer dealt with seizing the vehicle.  That left just members of the patrol unit to deal with any collisions as well as their own duties for a period of time Thursday afternoon.  Police said that luckily, collisions on city streets have been relatively few considering the snow and ice drivers are dealing with.  ~~  Warren Affleck
