Police in midwestern Ontario say a 34-year-old man is suspected of driving impaired while having a toddler in his car.

Shelburne, Ont., police officers say they received a call Wednesday from a resident about a suspected drunk driver.

They say officers stopped the vehicle in question and also found a toddler who was not secured in a car seat.

Police say the driver provided breath samples that indicated he had more than double the legal limit of alcohol in his system.

The man faces one count of driving a vehicle with over 80 milligrams of alcohol, driving while impaired and failing to ensure the toddler was properly secured.

Police say the man was released from custody with a promise to appear in court in early January.
