A case of the muchies led police to an impaired driver last weekend.

On Saturday, April 3 at 2:45 a.m., Delta police observed a vehicle in a nearby parking lot in the 5700 block of Ladner Trunk Road.

“The driver was sitting inside the vehicle with the engine turned on and the keys in the ignition,” said DPD. “The driver was eating a bag of family size Doritos. The driver exhibited signs of impairment such as glossy eyes, slow movement, slurred speech, and slow reaction time. Police observed open liquor inside the vehicle and an odour of marijuana was also detected.”

DPD say an Approved Screening Device demand was read, which resulted in a “pass”. A Standardized Field Sobriety Test demand was then read, but the driver refused to perform the test. The driver was issued a 24-hour prohibition and the vehicle was towed.
