A man reportedly already drunk when he showed up at a west-end beer vendor was found behind the wheel of a vehicle — despite court orders.
Police say they were tipped off about a drunk driver around 3:40 p.m. on Monday afternoon. The man had just been reported at the vendor in the 3500-block of Victoria Avenue. Officers quickly spotted the vehicle and identified the driver.
He turned out to be a 23-year-old man from Birdtail Sioux, who was bound by two separate court orders to not consume alcohol.
Police arrested him and took him to the Brandon Correctional Centre. He was to appear in court on Tuesday, where he was to face four counts of failing to comply with a recognizance order.
