On Thursday April 23, 2020 at approximately 11:29 p.m. an officer of the Huntsville Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) observed a truck travelling on Highway 11 southbound off ramp which runs east of and adjacent to the Huntsville OPP Detachment. The truck lost control on the off ramp and came to stop. The driver of the truck started again and continued toward Ravenscliffe Rd. driving in a concerning manner.
The officer conducted a traffic stop of the truck. Resulting from the subsequent investigation, police have charged a 40-year-old male, Bradley Ellas of Huntsville, with the following:
Operating a motor vehicle while impaired by alcohol contrary to section 320.14(1)(a) of the Criminal Code.
Failure or Refusal to Comply with a Breath Demand contrary to section 320.15(1) of the Criminal Code.
Ellas was released and will be appearing in the Ontario Court of Justice, Huntsville Ontario, on July 8, 2020 to answer to his charges.
As in all cases where a driver has been charged with impaired driving, Ellas’s driver’s licence has been suspended for 90 days and his vehicle was impounded.
