Airdrie RCMP conducted a traffic stop of our client’s vehicle on Hwy 2. The car was stopped as it was observed driving 190 km/hr passing traffic. Upon speaking with the client the officers observed the smell of alcohol as well as slurred speech. Our client was arrested for impaired operation of a motor vehicle. A search of the vehicle resulted in cocaine being found. J. W. was subsequently charged with dangerous driving, impaired operation and possession of a controlled substance. Following a comprehensive Charter notice alleging an arbitrary detention as well as an illegal search, the Crown agreed to resolve the matter on the day of trial for a Traffic Safety Act infraction. All criminal code charges were withdrawn.
