On Thursday, May 27, 2021 at approximately 2:41 p.m., uniformed officers from the Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) Caledon Detachment responded to a reported motor vehicle collision in the area of Mayfield Road and McLaughlin Road in the town of Caledon.

Information was received that a black sedan rear ended another car. There were no injuries reported at the time.

As a result of the police investigation, the driver of the black sedan was placed under arrest for Impaired Operation by Drug, and transported to a police facility for further tests to be conducted by a Drug Recognition Evaluator.

As a result of those tests, Liam PERRY, 47, of Rockwood, has been charged with:

• Operation while impaired – drug

The driver received a 90-day driver’s license suspension and a 7-day vehicle impound.

The accused is expected to appear at the Ontario Court of Justice in Orangeville on August 12, 2021 to answer to the charge.

There is no good excuse for driving while impaired, and being a passenger with an impaired driver is also risky. You have options:

• Make sure you have a designated driver

• Call a friend or loved one to pick you up

• Call a cab or a ridesharing service.

• Stay over
