Officers located the vehicle with its front-end buried in the snowbank and a driver in the vehicle. The man was taken to hospital for injuries.
An officer smell alcohol coming from the driver. However, police allege the man refused “several times” to provide a proper breath sample. He allegedly threatened officers, too.

He was released from custody and is scheduled to appear in court on March 6.
