During the early morning hours of December 1, 2019, Bay Roberts RCMP observed a pickup truck driving erratically on Veterans Memorial Highway.
A traffic stop was initiated and the driver, 50-year-old Anthony Ricketts of Upper Island Cove, was found to be impaired by alcohol and was arrested. He was brought to Bay Roberts Detachment where he provided breath samples more than twice the legal limit.
His vehicle was impounded. He was released from custody and will appear in Provincial Court at a later date.
