A 33-year-old Toronto woman has been charged with several offences after she was allegedly caught driving impaired with two passengers — one of whom was a five-year-old girl.
York Regional Police say an officer pulled the accused over in Vaughan around 6:45 p.m. on June 24 after he noticed a vehicle allegedly missing two stop signs, driving erratically and litter being thrown out of the car.
The vehicle was stopped near Clarence St. and Wycliffe Ave. and the officer quickly arrested the driver after asking her several questions.
A video of the interaction — captured by a police cruiser’s dashcam — shows when the officer asked the accused for her driver’s licence she allegedly blew it twice, first showed the cop a photo of J. Cole on Apple Music and then showing him a map.
“Okay, you’re under arrest — you’re drunk,” the officer says, as he handcuffs the woman on the hood of his police cruiser.
“You’ve got a kid in the car for God’s sake,” he adds.
No one was hurt in the incident but in a statement release Friday, police say: “We are not giving up in our fight against impaired driving. We are urging our citizens to partner with us in the Safe Roads: Your Call campaign by calling 9-1-1 if they suspect a driver is impaired, this weekend and all summer long. We consider these incidents life-threatening crimes in progress and will continue to respond to these calls.”
