The RCMP are reminding drivers not to drink and drive after an incident Wednesday in Williams Lake.

At 5:48 p.m. on Dec. 17, police received a complaint that a white Dodge pickup had backed into two different vehicles and drove away in the Safeway parking lot.

“The witness advised that the driver of the vehicle was wearing a high visible shirt and was intoxicated,” Sgt. Rick LeBeuf said.

When police officers attended the scene, they located two vehicles with very slight damage to their rear bumpers.

A short time later they located the suspect vehicle and pulled the vehicle over after it almost caused another accident on Fourth Avenue South and Mackenzie Avenue South. The driver of the vehicle admitted to drinking alcohol, but not to the hit and run.

The driver was given a roadside driving suspension and a ticket for no driver’s licence.

“The public is encouraged to consider a safe way home if they are going to be drinking during the festive season,” LeBeuf said.
