ATV driver faces charge


At 5:45 p.m. on Saturday, the Ear Falls OPP responded to a single motor-vehicle collision involving an all-terrain vehicle (ATV).

Upon speaking to the driver, officers suspected alcohol was a factor and administered a roadside screening device.

Upon failing the device, the driver was arrested and taken to the Ear Falls detachment for further breath tests.

A 52-year-old Ear Falls man subsequently was charged with operating a motor vehicle with a blood alcohol level over 80 mg.

He also was served a 90-day driving suspension.

The man is scheduled to appear in court June 2 in Red Lake.
