Police tracked down and arrested an impaired driver who narrowly missed hitting two other vehicles.

Officers were tipped off at about 6 p.m. on Wednesday that a possibly impaired driver was headed into Brandon along Grand Valley Road. Shortly after, a second call reported that the same vehicle had almost hit two other vehicles in the 3900-block of Victoria Avenue.

Cops caught up with the suspect in a parking lot at 18th Street and Richmond Avenue, where they say the driver of the vehicle appeared obviously impaired. He was arrested and taken to the police station, where breaeth tests showed he had a blood-alcohol level more than twice the legal limit.

A 51-year-old Brandon man faces charges of impaired driving over .08 and of having care and control of a motor vehicle while impaired. He's to appear in Brandon court on July 7.
