A 25 year old Welland Ontario man is facing impaired related charges after Port Hope Police received a complaint about erratic driving.

Port Hope Police Officers attended the scene and commenced an investigation into the sobriety of the driver after which he was taken into custody for impaired operation of a conveyance.
