A Toronto man has been arrested and charged after police say he refused to provide a roadside breath sample during a traffic stop in Peterborough, Ont., on Friday night.
The Peterborough Police Service says that just before midnight, officers conducted a traffic stop after reportedly observing a vehicle driving “recklessly” in the area of George Street North and Perry Street.
Police say that while speaking with the driver, officers detected a “strong odour” of an alcoholic beverage coming from the driver’s breath.
The man allegedly refused to conduct a roadside breath test. Police say the officer again made the request, but the man allegedly refused.
As a result of the investigation, Kevin James Boyling, 27, of Cliffcrest Drive in Toronto, was arrested and charged with failure or refusal to comply with a demand.
He was issued an automatic 90-day driver’s licence suspension and a seven-day vehicle impoundment.
He was released from custody and is scheduled to appear in court in Peterborough on June 30, police said on Monday.
