Driver, 90, faces impaired charges in St. John's

It appears that impaired driving does not have an age barrier, an incident in St. John's on Sunday night suggests.

The Royal Newfoundland Constabulary said a member of the public reported seeing an erratic driver.

When an officer pulled over the car, the driver refused to give a breath sample. The driver told the officer he was 90 years old and that he wasn't going to do it.

The man faces charges of impaired driving and of refusing a breathalyzer. He was released and will appear in provincial court at a later date.
