Cobourg Police – Man arrested for Impaired Operation

On October 12, 2021, at 4:24 p.m., police were dispatched to William Street in response to a report of a vehicle driving erratically. It was reported that the vehicle had rear-ended another vehicle at the intersection of William Street at King Street.     

As a result of the police investigation, 60-year-old Cobourg resident, Blair MCCOLL, was charged with the following offences:

  1. Operation while impaired – alcohol contrary to section 320.14 (1)(a) of the Criminal Code
  2. Dangerous operation contrary to section 320.13(1) of the Criminal Code
  3. Failure or refusal to comply with demand contrary to section 320.15(1) of the Criminal Code

MCCOLL was released from custody on an Undertaking with a future court date.

Cobourg Police encourage the public to report suspected impaired driving by calling 911. Impaired driving is the #1 criminal cause of death in Canada and, yet, every impaired driving crash is preventable. By calling 911 and reporting suspected impaired drivers to police, everyone can play a role in keeping our roads and waterways safe and in reducing impaired driving crashes, deaths and injuries.

Always plan for a safe way to get home by calling a friend, a relative, a cab, or by designating a sober driver.
