Our office was retained by Mr. P’s sister, a prominent lawyer. Mr. P.’s wife had called the police as her husband had passed out in his vehicle in front of their home. Officers attended and brought Mr. P. back to the RCMP detachment where he provided breath samples more than 3 times the legal limit (300 mg/%). Mr. P. was a professional and his livelihood was dependent upon ensuring an unblemished criminal record. At trial, our office filed written argument alleging that Mr. P’s constitutional rights were violated by police. It was argued that the officers lacked the grounds to arrest Mr. P. and further, their decision to keep Mr. P. in cells overnight constituted an arbitrary detention. In the end, the charges were withdrawn on the first day of trial.
