McNeil said police suspected the man had been driving after consuming alcohol. The man was then administered, and failed two roadside breath tests.

On the same date, a 40-year old Sicamous man received a 90-day immediate roadside driver’s licence suspension after failing two roadside breath tests. The man was driving on Main Street at 2 a.m. when he was stopped by police.

In both cases the vehicles were towed and impounded for 30 days at the owners’ expense.
