OPP cruiserA pair of concerned citizens called the Ontario Provincial Police early Saturday morning after noticing a transport being driven erratically eastbound on Highway 401 near Shannonville.

At 3:18 a.m., the citizen called 911 to report the unpredictable driving and also indicated the transport had scraped up against the centre concrete median multiple times.

A second complainant called police to report the transport had a Quebec licence plate and had BTC labelled on the back trailer.

While police from Napanee OPP were responding to the call, they were notified that the transport had pulled onto the shoulder of the highway near Wymans Road, Tyendinaga Township. Police located the transport truck at 3:45 a.m.

Officers arrested the driver for impaired driving and transported him to Loyalist OPP detachment for breath tests.

Tejpah Randhawa, 33, of Laval, Que., faces charges of impaired operation of a motor vehicle, refusing to provide a breath sample and dangerous driving.

Randhawa was released on a recognizance and is scheduled to appear in Provincial Court in Napanee on Feb. 23.
