(THUNDER BAY, ON) – Yet another incident today involving a vehicle, possibly CTB related.
Pino Demasi was headed down Trowbridge Road to investigate a vehicle that was reported to be upside down in the ditch.
Upon noticing the vehicle, he slowed down and passed the vehicle safely.
A member of the Ontario Provincial Police spotted Demasi and turned around to initiate a traffic stop.
Demasi stopped the vehicle and spoke with the officer, admitting his licence is suspended. The officer requested a breath sample from Demasi as the smell of alcohol was just emanating from his big mouth.
Demasi, who is clearly fat, sweaty and breathing heavily at this time, supplied his breath and blew a 0.019. 0.080 is the point where an impaired charge is laid. Demasi was not impaired.
Demasi was charged with the following offence:
- Driving while suspended.
He was released with a future court date.
