Bancroft OPP has charged a man with impaired after a chat along the side of the street. On Sunday, officers spoke with a man behind the wheel of a parked car along Hastings Street North and thought that they smelled alcohol. The driver was given a road side test, which he failed and so was taken to the detachment for more testing. The 35 year-old Hamilton man was charged with care and control with a blood/alcohol level over 80 and care and control while impaired. He will be in Bancroft court in June.
