A Bracebridge man picked the wrong time for a pit stop, a courtroom heard recently.
Jordan Smith, 35, recently appeared in a Bracebridge courtroom and pleaded guilty to driving with over 80 mg of alcohol per 100 ml.
Court heard that on Feb. 21, 2023, at roughly 9:30 pm a police officer encountered Smith at a convenience store on Cedar Lane in Bracebridge. The officer smelled alcohol on Smith and proceeded to pull him over a short time later.
Smith admitted to having consumed alcohol and subsequently blew a reading of 190 mg of alcohol per 100 ml of blood – double the legal limit.
Court heard Smith has a record for a “related offence” and his license was already suspended at the time of his arrest.
He was sentenced to a $3,000 fine, a 12-month driving ban and 12 months of probation.
