Man Charged With Impaired Driving of ATV

OPP officers were sent to investigate a sunken bulldozer Saturday, April 11th, 2009, only to find its operator drunk, riding an ATV north of Port Burwell.

Police say a full-sized bulldozer had been driven into Big Otter Creek and was leaking fuel.

On their way, they saw an intoxicated man driving an ATV in the area and discovered that he was the owner of the bulldozer.

The bulldozer was taken out of the creek and the Ministry of Environment and Bayham fire department cleaned up the fuel.

The owner of the bulldozer, a 56-year-old Bayham man, has been charged with impaired driving, failing to provide a breath sample and driving while disqualified.
