A 20-year-old Rankin Inlet man will be heading to court to answer to impaired driving related charges following an incident in the community on Saturday night.
Police located the ATV and arrested a man they say was the driver after he allegedly failed a test involving a roadside screening device.
The accused is scheduled to appear in court in Rankin Inlet on Feb. 10, 2020.
“The Nunavut RCMP wish to remind the public of the dangers of impaired driving and the dire consequences that often result from operating a vehicle while impaired,” the Mounties stated in a news release on Monday. “The public should take note that the National Impaired Enforcement Day is scheduled for December 7th and check stops will be conducted throughout the territory.”
