A Muskoka Lakes man was in front of a judge in Bracebridge earlier this week to plead guilty to driving offences stemming from two different incidents.
On Wednesday, Corey Foreman, 26, pleaded guilty to impaired operation of a motor vehicle on Aug. 6, 2021, and guilty to divining with over 80p mg of alcohol per 100 ml of blood stemming from a crash on April 19, 2020.
Court heard that on April 19, 2020 at roughly 12:30 am the police received a call about a single-vehicle accident on Highway 169 in Muskoka Lakes. A caller reported that a pickup truck had been swerving between lanes before it crashed into a ditch.
Police smelled alcohol on the drover, Foreman, and he subsequently blew over the legal limit.
In the Aug. 6 incident, the OPP reported that at 9:56 p.m. they responded to a motor vehicle that was stopped in the middle of the intersection of Bethune Drive and Brock Street, in Gravenhurst.
The driver, Foreman, was passed out in the driver’s seat at the intersection. A second concerned citizen made another 9-1-1 call, to report the same vehicle was being driven backwards into wrong-way traffic.
Foreman was arrested again and blew 210 mg of alcohol per 100 ml of blood.
The judge agreed to a joint submission for a $4,200 fine, a two-year driving ban and 12 months of probation.
