Ms. D. retained our office to represent her with an impaired driving charge. Police were called when residents of an apartment complex sitting in her car drinking a bottle of wine. Officers responded and found our client sleeping in the driver’s seat with drool running down her face. An arrest was made and our client blew 300 mg/%. A 2-day trial ensued with Mr. Wyman filing a constitutional notice alleging that the officer violated our client’s section 9 Charter right to be free from an arbitrary detention. During the trial, Mr. Wyman was critical of the officer’s decision to arrest the client within seconds of the initial investigation without first eliminating the option that she was in medical distress. The trial judge agreed and consequently acquitted our client of the offences before the court.
