A Gravenhurst man found himself behind bars recently after being convicted for a pair of driving infractions in short order.
Appearing in Bracebridge court, Douglas Condy, 67, pleaded guilty to diving with over 80 mg of alcohol per 100 ml of blood, stemming from a July 4, 2022 incident and impaired driving from a Sept. 19, 2022 incident.
In the July incident, police were contacted by a concerned motorist on Highway 11 in Gravenhurst who said another driver was all over the road. Condy was stopped by police and it was determined that he had been drinking. He ultimately blew 140 mg of alcohol per 100 ml of blood.
In the September incident, police received a call at roughly 6:30 pm about a vehicle in a ditch in Bracebridge.
Police arrived and found Condy in the driver’s seat with numerous beer cans around the vehicle. Police reported he was so intoxicated he was unable to stand.
Court heard that Condy was already suspended from driving because of the first incident and he was arrested again.
Court heard that Condy had served 17 days in pre-trial custody. He was sentenced to time served, a $1,500 fine and a two-year driving ban.
