A 30-year-old Campbellford man will pay for a couple of wild nights out with his time and his money.

Christopher Jones will spend 57 days in jail (on weekends) for assaulting a peace officer on Dec. 16 and a further $7,450 in fines for driving while drunk and without insurance.

Peterborough County OPP report that they received a complaint shortly before 2 p.m. Wednesday (Jan. 25) of a possible impaired heading to a Villiers Line address. Police stopped the suspect vehicle as it turned from Peterborough County Road 2 onto Villiers Line.

Jones was charged with driving with more than 80mg of alcohol in 100ml of blood, two counts of failing to comply with court orders, novice driver with more than zero blood/alcohol concentration, driving with no insurance and driving an unsafe vehicle.

In court on Feb. 1, he pleaded guilty of driving with more than the legal level of alcohol in his blood and was fined $1,200. He was also convicted of driving without insurance, which added a $6,250 fine.

For the assault on the peace officer, he was sentenced to 57 days in jail and a year of probation. While serving that time, he will put in a day each for uttering a threat on the same day and for violating his bail when arrested in January.

The additional charges were withdrawn.
