RCMP in BC’s Columbia Valley have charged a man from Alberta for driving drunk with kids in his vehicle.

Last Friday, police were called after a man was seen driving shoulder to shoulder through Kootenay National Park and then stopped to throw up on the side of the road.

Officers quickly responded and arrested a 42 year old Calgary man for impaired driving.

Mounties say three children, all under the age of six were with him in the car. The kids were safe and police called their mom to take them home.

The driver of the vehicle blew over the legal limit and RCMP towed and impounded his vehicle. He expected to appear in court at a later date.

I started my radio career in 2015, shortly after graduating from Lethbridge College. I have a very strong passion for local news.

Proudly born in 1994, I grew up most of my life in Sylvan Lake, AB and I’ve lived in the Lethbridge since 2012. I’m a below average golfer on a good day, I take as many hiking trips to Waterton as possible in the summer and I love my two cats, Outlaw and Jynx, and my dog, Maverick, more than most people I know.

I look forward to providing accurate, timely news coverage in southern Alberta for plenty of years to come!
