On Sunday December 9, 2018 at approximately 04:30hrs while looking for the suspect vehicle involved in the fail to remain accident, another motor vehicle was located by a St. Thomas Police officer that appeared to have an impaired driver.  The officer conducted a traffic stop and made observations about the driver which caused him to request a standard field sobriety test.  As a result the driver was arrested and taken the the St. Thomas Police station for further tests by a Drug Recognition Evaluator.  The driver was evaluated and it was determined that the driver was impaired by drug.  As such a 26 year old St. Thomas male was charged with impaired operation of a motor vehicle (by drug) and possession of a controlled substance. He was subsequently released with a future court date.
