A Clearview woman’s driver’s licence has been suspended after an officer smelled alcohol on her breath when she attended an OPP detachment as part of a routine criminal record check.

Huronia West OPP said the woman drove to the detachment Tuesday morning to have her fingerprint taken for a criminal record check. The attending officer detected an odour of alcohol. A breath sample was taken and it registered in the ‘warn’ range.

The 55-year-old was given a three-day licence suspension and had to make arrangements to have her vehicle removed from the parking lot.
