Police say officers were conducting routine patrols in Liverpool, N.S., on Friday when they stopped a vehicle for erratic driving.
The driver gave police an international drivers licence that they said looked “suspicious.”
An officer was able to determine the licence was a fake and that the driver of the vehicle was prohibited from driving.
The man was promptly arrested and administered the RCMP’s roadside screen device.
As a result of the incident, the driver is facing a charge of driving while prohibited under the Criminal Code.
The driver was also served three tickets under the Nova Scotia Motor Vehicle Act. They include:
- Displaying a fictitious licence
- Driving a motor vehicle without insurance
- Operating a motor vehicle without a valid driver’s licence
The driver is scheduled to appear in Bridgewater Provincial Court March 3 to face the prohibited driving charge.
He is also scheduled to appear March 13 to face the three offences under the Motor Vehicle Act.
