Six Nations woman charged with impaired driving

SIX NATIONS OF THE GRAND- Six Nations Police have charged a 27-year-old Ohsweken woman with impaired driving after  police, on patrol Saturday July 31, 2021, at about 11:30 PM,  were heading westbound on 5th Line Road when they saw a car heading eastbound towards them at a high rate of speed.

Police said the vehicle’s speed was confirmed by an on-board radar unit when the vehicle swerved into the path of the police who took evasive action to avoid a collision.  Police said they turned around and pulled the vehicle over in a driveway.

She was placed  under arrest for impaired driving.
As a result of the investigation, Charlotte Johnson, 27, of Ohsweken, was released on a Recognizance with a court date for the following charges:
Impaired Driving and Alcohol Per Se Offence 80 plus contrary to the Criminal Code of Canada and Speeding, Drive Left of Centre – On a Curve, and Drive Motor Vehicle – No Currently Validated Permit contrary to the Highway Traffic of Ontario.
