Despite the efforts of the accused, the Weyburn Police Service made an arrest for impaired driving Saturday.  

The WPS was alerted to the impaired driver by the RCMP, who stated the suspect vehicle was on Highway 35 near Weyburn just before noon on Saturday. The Weyburn Combined Traffic Services Section member was patrolling in the area, and found a vehicle matching the description.  

The officer attempted to conduct the traffic stop, but they fled at a high rate of speed. Then, the suspect decided to head back to Weyburn. 

“Approximately 20-25 minutes later, it came back in on Highway 35, entering the city limits of Weyburn,” explained Deputy Police Chief Brent Van De Sype. “That same CTSS member was able to make the stop. That driver was found to be impaired and now faces charges.” 

The charges that the suspect faces include dangerous operation of a motor vehicle, operating a motor vehicle while impaired, disobeying a signal by a police officer to stop and having open alcohol in the vehicle.
