Chatham-Kent OPP arrested a Mississauga man Tuesday afternoon, when a vehicle was spotted being driven in an erratic manner in the westbound lanes on Highway 401 near the Highway 40 overpass.
The OPP said the driver failed a roadside alcohol test and further breath tests at headquarters revealed he was over the legal limit.
A 49-year-old Mississauga man was charged with exceeding 80 mgs of blood-alcohol content while driving a motor vehicle.

A 36-year-old Brampton man is facing a charge of impaired operation of a motor vehicle by drug following a traffic stop on Highway 401 in Elgin County Tuesday evening.

A drug recognition expert determined the driver was impaired by drugs, the OPP said.
The accused was also charged with flight from police, using an unauthorized plate, operating a motor vehicle without insurance, driving while under suspension and driving a motor vehicle with no validated permit.
