Marathon resident arrested after roadside stop

Woman's driver's licence suspended for 90 days

MARATHON, Ont. -- An early-morning traffic stop by Ontario Provincial Police in Marathon resulted in a loss of driving privileges, and a court date for a local resident.

Officers pulled a vehicle over at 3:35  a.m. Wednesday after spotting it travelling at high speed.

When they detected the odour of alcohol and observed other signs of impairment, the officers requested a breath sample from the woman driving the vehicle.

Because she refused, she was arrested and charged with failing to provide a breath sample.

The woman, who's 30 years old, was also given a mandatory 90-day driver's licence suspension, and had her vehicle impounded for seven days.

She has a date in court next month.
