Incident One

On June 18, 2022, at approximately 1:30 AM, a vehicle rear-end another vehicle in the area of Campbell Street and Sutton Street. Fortunately, there were no injuries. As officers arrived and conducted their investigation grounds were formed to arrest the driver of one of the vehicles for impaired operation

The accused was transported back to Sarnia Police Headquarters and samples of breath were taken to determine the amount of alcohol in the accused’s blood. As a result of the testing it was determined that the individual had over the legal limit of alcohol in their blood.

The driver then fled the vehicle on foot but thanks to witnesses was located a short while later and taken into custody by police. A demand was made for the accused to supply a sample of breath to a qualified breath technician but ultimately refused.

The accused, Zakri Roger Vaillancourt, 24 years of age, of Sarnia, faces one count of refusal to comply with a demand and one count of failing to remain at the scene of a collision.

Incident Three

The officer conducted a traffic stop in the area of Maxwell Street and Capel Street to confirm the driver’s sobriety. A demand was made for a roadside alcohol-screening device to be administered and as a result a fail was registered.

In turn the accused was transported to the station and tested on the Breathalyzer by a qualified breath technician. Testing indicated that the accused was over the legal limit.
