Drunk Driver Crashes Through Neighbours’ Property – Charges Withdrawn


CC: s.430(1)(a) – Mischief over $5000, TSA: s.115(2)(b) – Careless Driving, s.69(1)(a) – Fail to Remain at the Scene of an Accident.


My client lost control of his vehicle and drove through a gate and a fence, knocking over fence posts and trees and taking out a shelter for some mailboxes. He abandoned his vehicle in a ditch because it was disabled. The police investigated and found him at home. He smelled strongly of alcohol.


All charges were withdrawn after he repaired the damages. No convictions.
