A Peterborough man is facing impaired driving charges following an incident earlier this month.

Peterborough Police Service says around 1:20 a.m. on Feb. 9, an officer on patrol located a vehicle up on a snowbank on Fairbairn Street. When the officer activated the cruiser’s emergency lights, a man in the suspect vehicle got out of the driver’s seat.

Police say a subsequent breath test revealed the driver had more than the legal limit of alcohol in his system.
