A 52-year old has a court date next month after to answer to impaired driving charges.

The man was stopped at a Haliburton Highlands O.P.P. check stop on Newcastle Street in Minden Hills last Thursday evening.

After speaking with the driver, police determined he had been drinking.

The O.P.P. says he failed a breathalyzer test as well.

His driver’s licence was suspended for 90-days, and his car was impounded for seven days.
